Barcelona legend Ronaldinho has stated that fellow country man Gabriel Jesus has the potentials to replace Lionel Messi as the world's best footballer.
But Ronaldinho who was known for his superb dribbling styles during his playing days must be reminded that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the current world's best player.

Gabriel Jesus has rightly won plenty of plaudits since taking the Premier League by storm this season scoring three goals in three League games and Ronaldinho has become the latest man to sing his praises.
''Jesus can be the best in the future, and I want to support him to achieve that to happen in his career.
''At the moment it is Messi. I have always said I think one day it will be Neymar.
''But at 19, in the future, it can be Gabriel. He has all the abilities to make that happen,'' He explained
Jesus and his City team-mates face Bournemouth on Monday, February, 13, 2017 in the League and a win will make them maintain the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea.
