Ronaldinho and Okocha were teammates at the French club, PSG and there have been many debates about how both players were rated in world football.

The Brazilian went on to have a splendid career at Barcelona and other European clubs before returning to Brazil where he ended his playing career.

Okocha also played in three World Cups for Nigeria and mesmerised in all of them. He was also a delight to watch at the club level but didn’t do a lot in terms of club honours, as reported by Soccernet.

His club career has been a source of debate for many football fans but the extent of his skillset is unarguable to even the most uninterested football fan.
