Roberto Carlos belives Neymar as Best
Brazil soccer legend Roberto Carlos says that Barcelona superstar Neymar is on a level that is superior to both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo despite the duo being adjudged by many as the best players in the world.
Neymar undoubtedly has a lot of talent but he is yet to fulfil them in the way that Ronaldo and Messi has done over the last five years. Barcelona are so confident that Neymar would win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award in the future that they inserted a clause in his contract when they brought him from Santos for around £ 40 million.
The Brazilian club will earn a significant amount of money if Neymar is crowned the best player in the world. Ronaldo and Messi are clearly at the peak of their careers while Neymar is just starting out. This seems to be one of the reasons behind Carlos having a lot of faith in the 23-year-old. Last season was a memorable one for the Brazilian as he finished the campaign with 22 goals from just 29 starts. Further, he was able to lift the Champions League title for the first time in his career. This season, he began his goal scoring account in the league with a crucial goal against Atletico Madrid.
"People are always talking about whether Messi or Ronaldo is the best, but for me it's Neymar.Barcelona's Neymar does a lot more than Brazil's Neymar, because the team is better established. Brazil are building a team for next year's Copa America.The Neymar we see at Barcelona is his best version. It is too much responsibility for him to be Brazil's leader already.He has Messi and Luis Suarez alongside him at Barcelona, which makes him feel more comfortable," said Carlos, who was regarded as the best left back in the world.
