Brazilian football legend, Roberto Carlos has praised Barcelona forward and Selecao captain, Neymar, calling him the “best” footballer in the world.
42 year old World Cup winner and 3-time UEFA Champions League winner, Carlos said he rated Neymar above multiple Ballon d’Or winners, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Carlos disclosed this while speaking with Globoesporte saying, “When I am asked about Messi and Cristiano I say that Neymar is the best for me.
“It is not just for his goals, but for the ease with which he plays and the confidence he has.
He predicted that Neymar was going to overthrow both Ronaldo and Messi at the top of the football hierarchy.
“Neymar is going to have a Ballon d’Or in one or two years because he is going to deserve it.
“Messi is ‘phenomental’ but in my opinion, Cristiano is a special player because he does everything for Madrid.
“It is not that Madrid do not have others – Kroos, Marcelo – but I think Cristiano is more decisive in Real Madrid than Messi in Barcelona.
“Messi plays with Neymar, Suarez, Iniesta, Busquets, while Cristiano starts to fight, assist and score from the front. He is a special player,” he added.
