Rivaldo- Messi and Ronaldo are dusty I would score 50 goals and win 3 Ballon d'Or's

30 posts in this topic

Brazilian legend Rivaldo has said he would be the best player in the world if he were still playing today.


The 1999 World Player of the Year went as far as saying he'd win the Ballon d'Or "two or three times", despite the presence of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at the pinnacle of today's game.


The former Brazil forward has made a return from retirement this year to help Brazilian second division club Mogi Mirim, for whom he is president, avoid relegation, and in a recent outing laid on an assist for son Rivaldinho in a 3-1 win over Macae.


Rivaldo clearly doesn't think much of the standard of today's game, telling Globo Esporte, via the London Evening Standard, that he'd score 50 goals a season if he were still playing.


 


“Football today is very different from before. The quality was much better before, in Brazil and worldwide, such as Spain and Italy. You see how football is not good when [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the best today, are scoring 50 goals in the championship.


“This shows that the level [of football] is lower. Even for the best in the world, you should not be scoring 50 goals in 38 games.”

I'd say this applies to Cristiano, not Messi, but still.

 

The numbers year in, year out, are a disgrace to every other team in that league.

So were Argentina in 86

If your great you will always take your team to the next level regardless

So that trash excuse doesn't wash

Portugal was not trash in 2004 or 2006

Were they trash in 1966 Uncle?

Could be argued that if the team is trash and a excellent player takes them up they are still are playing catch up with the good teams

Defending isn't what it was. Considering that, he's right.
