Cafu names player ‘technically’ better than Messi, Ronaldo

Brazil legend, Cafu, has named his fellow compatriot, Neymar, as the player that is technically better than Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi and Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neymar has been compared to Messi and Ronaldo from the beginning of his career.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has had a glittering career so far.

However, many experts and pundits feel that Neymar is yet to reach the heights of Messi and Ronaldo.

But Cafu believes Neymar has to become a captain.

Speaking at the Marca Sports weekend event in Seville, Cafu said: “Neymar is technically better than Messi, better than Cristiano Ronaldo, but he must assume the responsibility of a leader.

“One must dedicate themselves 100 per cent to football. I’m not better than Neymar, but I’m better than other right-backs because I dedicated myself to that. He [Neymar] has to become a captain.”

Neymar, now 29 years old, is running out of time to win a Ballon d’Or award.

Having first burst onto the scene at Santos, the forward became one of the best players in the world during his time at Barcelona.
