Zinedine Zidane rates Brazilian Ronaldo as best player he ever played with | inside World Soccer

France legend Zinedine Zidane has claimed that former Brazilian superstar Ronaldo was the finest teammate he ever played alongside.

Zidane played with Ronaldo at Real Madrid between 2002 and 2006 during the Galácticos era, alongside the likes of Luís Figo, David Beckham, and Raúl.

"I've always seen Ronaldo as the best because I played and trained with him," Zidane told Goal.

"He's probably the best player I ever played with. He did what he wanted with the ball and didn't have any weaknesses.

"When he decided to express himself with the ball, he did whatever he wanted. Technically, no player has impressed me more than Ronaldo. On a good day, it was impossible to stop him.

"There was no system or tactics that could stop him.

"It's like that with a few players and he was one of them - he was fast and skilled.

"When Ronaldo had the ball, he ran at 2000 miles per hour. In most cases, you're fast without the ball. He was fast with it."

Ronaldo won two World Cups, two Copa Americas and two Ballons d'Ors during his glittering playing career.
