Seriously, I couldn't pick one between the 3 ronaldos at their best if I was a manager.
ronaldinho: have you guys forgotten what type of player this guy was before getting the "ballon d'or"? ("balon de oro" in spain, I don't know how it's called in english, because "golden ball" sounds awfull lol). I remember the ceremony with ronaldinho. That's it, he obtained all the goals he could possibly dream of as a kid in club, national team and individually (champion's league, world cup, ballon d'or). That's where his ambition was standing; reaching the the zenith of football. That night he brough he Ma' on stage when he received the best individual prize for a footballer in '05. He made it. This guy from the favellas made it, he had won everything, with tons of money, was crowned the best footballer and there was his ma' who had suffered all her life. They both cried and there was nothing that could ever make them prouder. Ronaldinho was like 26 and he decided his career was over, he had so much talent, had such great contracts with his club and Nike that from now on it would only be about having fun, clubbing, samba and bitches! Being the best ever was never his goal; he was happy with just being the best at some point. But can the shit he's been up to since half a decade erase the freaking monster this guy was? He had 2-3 years during which he did stuff from another planet, really... He was touched by grace!
ronaldo: this guy just was a revolution, no one had ever seen anything like that... outstanding physical, techinal and creativity. The new Pelé since he was 17 playing for PSV. He was even part of Brazil 94' that won the world cup, under the name of "ronaldinho" at the time. He really became famous after his year in Barcelona when he was 19, just before the 98' world cup in france. As a frenchman, I gave our team no chance in the final. They had freakin' ronaldo!! Who could win a world cup final with a team playing with ronaldo as a striker?? you were just doomed!! Luckily for us, he got sick the night before or something, and couldn't play, he came in by the end when Zidane had already scored 2 headers and the world cup was ours. He had signed for Inter the year before and that's when his troubles started. His first year was only reasonable, but then started his knee injuries. Injuries that kept him out of the pitch for entire seasons. this guy, the new pelé was just finished. By some miracle, he came back before the world cup 2002 which he won then signed for Madrid, where he made one of the greatest comebacks for a few seasons. Ronaldo was just like a big baby. He just seems like being such a nice guy, with lots of bad luck but never complaining. I think everybody loved him for his personality. He won 2 "ballons d'or" in 97 and 02. Only for this I think he was better than Ronaldinho. He lost everything and came back with a revenge 5 years later.
cristiano ronaldo: a spoiled brat. good looking with excellent skills. horrible sense of competition. This guy has just been the best at everything since he was a kid and likes to let his opponents know. You cannot deny his incredible skills and his incredible mental and physical preparation. This guy dedicates every second of his life at being the best. He got his "ballon d'or" in '08 when he was 23, a little later he became the most expensive transfer ever for 96M euros when he went to the real madrid. But the runner up from 08', a small argentinian 2 years younger playing for barcelona was going to be his nightmare. Ronaldo will manage to get unhuman stats year after year; but no matter what he would do, the small and ugly argentinian would always do better. And everybody would hate him and love the ugly little argentinian playing for the rival club. Worse of all, the Ugly little argentinian was going to win a 4th straight "ballon d'or" while he has become the eternal runner up... What a tragedy for the narcissist CR7, as he likes to be called.... Nothing is going as planned no matter how awesome he is!
