Former Super Eagles skipper, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has named Ronaldinho as his best teammate.
Okocha played alongside the Brazilian superstar at Paris Saint- Germain in the 2001/2002 season before joining Bolton Wanderers the following season after playing at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
Ronaldinho is a member of Paris Saint- Germain’s hall of fame following his glorious time at the French club.
They were involved in a combined 35 goals between them for PSG in the 2001/2002 season.
Okocha went on to play for Bolton in the premier league, while Ronaldinho made a big move to Barcelona in 2003.
The former Hull City midfielder said Ronaldinho was his best teammate because their style of play is similar.
He said in an interview on Eurosport
“The best teammate that I ever played with is Ronaldinho because when you are playing with someone that is a bit similar to you, you don’t need to communicate to understand each other.
“Just looking at each other, you know what to do, and for me my best opponent was myself because I always put myself under pressure to do well, to be the best in wherever I am.
“I always believe that I am the only person that can stop myself, and because I also believed that I had a special talent.”
Ronaldinho went on to win the Uefa Champions League, FIFA world cup, while he was also awarded the world player of the year award twice amongst many other individual honours.
