Brazil’s Neymar has named the handful of players who he believes are more skillful than him.
There aren’t many players on earth who are technically superior to the PSG winger but he has named the five who he thinks outrank him on the list.
The 30-year-old didn’t fail to acknowledge his skill before proceeding to list out the players.
“I don’t know if I can answer that, with all the humility in the world I consider myself one of the most technical players in football today,” he told Oh My Goal.
“But I would say, Messi. A player that I’d like to play again with today, clearly it’s Messi because he’s number one, the greatest of all. Every club, every player loves him. Everyone wants to play with him.
“I would say Messi, [Eden] Hazard, [Kevin] De Bruyne and [Marco] Verratti. I’m missing one, right? More technical than me… Thiago.”
Neymar was sent home early from the World Cup after a heartbreaking loss to Croatia ended Brazil’s tournament hopes. The 30-year-old has hinted that he may not return to his international side after breaking Pele’s goal-scoring record.
Where do you think Neymar ranks on the list of most skilful players?
