Not even Zinedine Zidane, Pele, or Diego Maradona had the pure talent possessed by Ronaldinho, according to the Brazilian's former AC Milan teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Often accused of wasting his potential to be one of the world's greatest-ever players, the skilful attacker nonetheless hoovered up honours in his somewhat short career, and still showed moments of brilliance in Serie A.

Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho swapped Spanish giants Barcelona for Milan in 2008 and Boateng was able to share the same pitch with the legend after signing for the San Siro club in 2010.

"At Milan he was no longer the Ronaldinho from his heyday, but when he wanted to, he showed what he could do with the ball and it was so impressive," Boateng told Fox Sports.

"In those moments you realised he was the best player in the world, beyond Zidane, Pele, or Maradona."When he wasn't out the night before and had rested well, he came to training and told the players who he'd nutmeg that day, and he always did it.

"He could hit the crossbar however many times he wanted and juggled the ball like you couldn't imagine, it was impossible to find a player with such talent."

Boateng also recalled his favorite highlights of his time at San Siro, although he insisted leaving the club was the right thing to do for his career.

"The most beautiful moments I spent at AC Milan have been three: when we won the league title, the goal against Barcelona and when I did Michael Jackson dance at San Siro," added Boateng. "I thought a lot before leaving Milan, they are a team of my heart, but for me at that time was the right thing to do.

The former Ghana international also labelled his brother Jerome as one of the best defenders in the world, saying of the Bayern Munich and Germany center half: "Is my brother is the best defender in the world? He is in the top three for sure."
