Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho revealed his shocking opinion on the level of Argentine Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Mourinho told the Spanish newspaper Marca he saw the best player ever, Brazilian Ronaldo Nazario, not Messi or Cristiano.

He added: "Cristiano and Messi have enjoyed a longer career and the duo have been at the top for 15 years."

He continued, "Nevertheless, if we are talking accurately about talent and skill, nobody beats Ronaldo Nazario. When he was in Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realized that he was the best player I've ever seen."
