Brazilian legend Ronaldo explains former Real Madrid colleague David Beckham as one of the biggest players of all time.
Brazilian legend Ronaldo has actually hailed former Real Madrid colleague David Beckham as “one of the best of all time”.
The duo played together at the Bernabeu in between 2003 and 2007, integrating as part of the well-known Galacticos team which likewise included the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Luis Figo
Beckham joined Madrid from Manchester United in 2003 and, after being applauded by three-time World Player of the Year Ronaldo, he confessed that the sight of the Brazilian persuaded him that he had actually made the appropriate decision.
Speaking during an Instagram Live conversation, Ronaldo informed Beckham: “You were one the best of all time. The way you touched the ball, the way you might put the ball any place you desired, without taking a look at me, I would simply be moving and the ball came.
“I should thank you for the many balls you gave to me.”
Beckham reacted: “To move from Manchester United to Real Madrid was a big move for me because I’d been there my whole life. But one of the first people that I ever saw was you. When you walked into the changing room it made me feel comfortable to be in the club.”
In spite of being part of one of the most star-studded teams of all time, Beckham and Ronaldo won simply one La Liga title during their time together at Real Madrid.
