The self-confidence of World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo knows no bounds.

The Daily Mail says earlier this season, Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand and Anderson were asked to nominate the greatest player of all time. Ferdinand opted for Diego Maradona and so did Anderson, the Brazilian voting for the Argentine legend ahead of Pele.

Ronaldo had someone else in mind.

"Me," he declared to the considerable amusement of his colleagues.
