While Barcelona’s attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have been deemed the best forwards in football history, Brazilian football icon, Ronaldinho doesn’t agree with this line of thought. Not even Real Madrid’s BBC- made up of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo comes close. The 36 year-old maintained that the trident during his spell at Barcelona were much stronger forces .

“The two tridents made history in their time with the club. Each one in his time did very well. But I prefer mine with Eto’o and Messi,” he said in a recent chat.

Ronaldinho Eto’o and Messi – played together for four seasons from 2004/2005 before he left the Spanish club at the end of the 2007/2008 season.

He also tipped his compatriot, Neymar to be the world best. “Neymar is already on the threshold of the best, I think one day he will be one of the best in the world, Brazilians hope that happens because he is our best player,” he said.
