Neymar is best in world and PSG star better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, claims Brazil legend Ribeiro

NEYMAR is the best player in the world, according to former Brazil international Caio Ribeiro.

The Paris Saint-Germain star is better in his eyes than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ribeiro told Panico Jovem Pan: "Even if he [Neymar] has behaviour that we don’t agree with, I think he is an ace, currently the best player in the world.

“He plays more balls than Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi.”

Neymar is one of the biggest stars in world football but the Brazilian ace is widely considered below the talent of superstars Ronaldo and Messi.

However Ribeiro clearly sees this differently and claims the PSG forward is the best player on the planet.

And with Messi and Ronaldo now in their 30s, 28-year-old Neymar has the chance to establish himself as the best star in the game.

Neymar has had injury problems during his career and this season has been no different with the striker sidelined.

But he has still made 15 appearances and scored 11 goals for PSG as he looks to help fire them to Champions League glory.


The Brazilian was left in tears at the end of last season after PSG suffered defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Former Barcelona star Neymar finished third in the 2015 Ballon d'Or vote and he achieved the same position two years later after his move to PSG.

Neymar will have his eyes on finally landing the Ballon d'Or in the coming seasons and Ribeiro feels he is up to the task.
