The former Brazil international and former FC Barcelona star Ronaldinho has recently admitted that the Brzil international and FC Barcelona forward Neymar is already the equal of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and it is only a matter of time before he wins his first Ballon d’Or.
The 25-year-old Neymar has recently helped rescue his side FC Barcelona during last week’s historical Champions League comeback against the France giant Paris Saint Germain.
As Neymar scored two late goals for Barcelona to record a staggering 6-1 win, which helped overturn a 4-0 first leg deficit.
And the Brazilian legend Ronaldinho believes that the Brazil international and FC Barcelona forward Neymar, who has already scored more than 70 goals for the Spanish champions since he joined the club in 2013 is already the equal of five and four times Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo respectively and it is only a matter of time before he wins his first Ballon d’Or.
As in a recent interview Ronaldinho said, “Neymar is a close friend and he is Brazil’s greatest idol today,”
“He’s already at the same level as Ronaldo and Messi and we truly hope that one day he can get the Ballon D’Or and continue his success, but he’s already among the top players and it’s just a matter of time.”
