Lionel Messi is an “incredible” talent but Ronaldinho remains the “best player in history”, says Gerard Deulofeu, a man who has worked alongside both at Barcelona.
Ronaldinho and Messi are both all-time greats, with seven Ballons d’Or collected between them. Six of those are owned by Messi, but Deulofeu believes a fan favourite of the past was the more exciting and precocious talent.
“Messiis incredible too, I like him very much. I played with him for six months and he is a nice person, a great player. The whole world knows aboutMessi.”
Deulofeu added on being in Udine: “The stadium is beautiful, but I already knew that because I played here withAC Milan. I like the training complex, it's very big.
“I had a wonderful experience inSerie Athe last time, as I played a lot and I played well.
“I have a wonderful memory ofAC Milanand of their fans, but now I'm here and my respect goes to Udinese and the club's fans.
“I feel different than I did then, because then I was looking for regular game time and consistency in my performances. Now, after two-and-a-half years atWatford, I think I am a totally different player.
