Why Antonio Might Be Too Biased Not To Have Listed Ronaldo Among The Top 5 Best Players Of All-time

Italian former professional footballer Antonio Cassano who played as a forward for Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Sampdoria recently gave his verdict on footballers (present and past) who should make the top five list of the best players of all time. Despite Cristiano Ronaldo's records, the former Inter Milan player omitted the Portuguese international's name from his biased list.

Antonio Cassano wrote: "He (Cristiano Ronaldo) is not among the top five best players of all-time. Lionel Messi, Pele, Diego Maradona, Cruyff, and Ronaldo Nazario are on another level". The article states why Antonio Cassano's verdict on Cristiano Ronaldo not being on the same level with Messi, Pele, Cruyff, and Nazario is biased, an act of jealousy and poor punditry.

Apart from the FIFA world cup trophy, there is no other major competition Cristiano Ronaldo has played in and failed to win the trophy as a player. The Portuguese international holds different unique records in the men's international and club football as well. Cristiano Ronaldo at the age of 36 became the all-time leading goalscorer in men's international football, and also the leading goalscorer in the history of the Uefa Champions League competition.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus star player isn't just a goalscorer, but also a team leader, motivator both (in and out of the football pitch). When it comes to men's football, the name Cristiano Ronaldo is a household name that everyone knows. Despite his age (36), he has been able to break different European football records and men's international records as well. Therefore Cassano's verdict on the Portuguese international is biased, an act of jealousy and poor punditry.

As a football fan, do you think former Italian player, Antonio Cassano is right by not naming Cristiano Ronaldo amongst the top five best players of all time?
