The Brazilian striker bowed out of the game on Monday, and Leonardo, who played alongside him with the Selecao, insists Ronaldo is in the same bracket as Diego Maradona and Pele.
"I also think he is the greatest striker in the history of football," Leonardo told the press.
"Messi is reaching great levels but after Maradona and Pele for me it's Ronaldo.
"I followed his press conference and it is like losing a symbol. I know him and I knew what was happening, but he will remain among the best."
