5 Players that are technically better than me – Neymar
PSG attacker, Neymar has named 5 quality players he feels possess better technical abilities and quality than he does.
Neymar is recognised as one of the most technically gifted footballers in Europe and America and has shone wherever he played, whether it’s at Santos, Barca or Paris. The Brazilian is an incredible player to watch having finished top three in the Ballon d’Or twice, both in 2015 and 2016.
Since his PSG move, the Brazillian has seen a drop in his game compared to his time at Barca, there’s isn’t much concentration on him by football fans except in the Champions League games. but he remains a quality player when he is fit to play.
The players he mentioned were:
1. Lionel Messi: This open isn’t arguable as Messi’s game speaks for itself. Arguably the best player of his generation. He is the highest goal scorer in the history of Barcelona, Argentina and in the history of La Liga.
2. Kevin De Bruyne: This man can thread the ball through the eye of a needle seamlessly. No one has created more goals and assists since he arrived in England.
3. Marco Verratti: Verratti never, ever lacks the zeal and aggression in a tackle and has good tactical nous and technical ability. The way he drifts around the pitch makes you think of prime Iniesta. Injuries have prevented him from reaching the heights he could attain.
4. Eden Hazard: Even while he has poor form in Madrid and Belgium, you can’t doubt the quality of this man and what he brings to the game. “The truth is what you see from him: he is an amazing player with awful training. “You can only imagine what he could be with a super-professional attitude in training.” That’s how Mourinho sums up this man.
5. Thiago Alcantara: Thiago is one of the best midfielders in the world – and very successful too. He has bagged major league titles nine times in the 10 seasons of his career, he won – two La Ligas with Barcelona and seven Bundesliga titles in a row with Bayern and two Champions League titles with both clubs. He is a serial winner.
