A visually impaired Ghanaian lawyer, Daniel Kofi Kyereh Nkrumah has declared Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo as the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) in footballing history.
He spoke during an interview on Ghana’s TV3, where he revealed that he watches football a lot and relies on mental visualization to enjoy the game.
Nkrumah said he currently has no favourite player but he Ronaldo over Argentina’s Lionel Messi in the controversial GOAT debate.
While acknowledging the duo’s talent against the current crop of footballers, Kofi Kyereh noted that a well-trained brain can visualise with the mind hence his ability to “watch a lot of videos” including football.
On Messi’s recent Ballon d’Or win, the lawyer said Manchester City’s Rodri deserved the accolade. He asserted that Messi’s victory was due to his goal-scoring achievement.
Nkrumah said; “I don’t have a favourite player currently because players of today are not as great as Messi and Ronaldo..
When asked who is the GOAT, he said; “I think I will take Ronaldo. Messi is talented but Ronaldo puts in hard work which makes him stand out. It teaches us that regardless of one’s talent if you put in hard work, you will supersede the talented and become better.”
