Cristiano Ronaldo among Barca legend’s top 5 players not Lionel Messi

FC Barcelona’s Portuguese defender, Joao Cancelo, recently shared his “top five” list of historical footballers in a video made by “FIFPRO”.

In his list, he included several former Manchester City teammates but did not include any current Barca players which disappointed many fans, according to FC Barcelona Noticias.

Interestingly, he completely left out Barcelona legend Lionel Messi, who currently plays for David Beckham’s Inter Miami.

Instead, he placed his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo as the reference in attack.

For the goalkeeper position, Cancelo opted for Brazilian Ederson, praising his consistency, skill in keeping the goal invincible in key moments, and his ability to play with his feet.

In defence, he included Ruben Dias for his leadership and personality on the field, describing him as a warrior who gives his all.

In the midfield, Cancelo chose Barca’s Bernardo Silva.

He praised his intelligence and commitment to the team, highlighting his physical capacity to run throughout the game, covering half of 13-14 kilometres.

Alongside himself, he chose Ronaldinho, whom he considers his all-time favourite player.

Finally, as the only forward, Cancelo chose CR7, whom he considers a legend of Portugal and an inspiration for all the youngsters aspiring to turn into professional footballers.
