Golden Boot winner at the 2010 World Cup, Diego Forlan has predicted bright future ahead of Barcelona star, Neymar. He said despite difficulties the young player experiences is facing presently, he would surpass expected goals.
“Neymar is one of the best strikers in the world, playing in football’s best club team. He scores goals, he makes assists, he gets past players, he produces magic when he gets the ball’.
I could continue to compliment him because Neymar has lived up to the hype. Other Brazilians who’ve gone to Europe haven’t always settled so quickly. Neymar has.
He knows he’s playing alongside the best in the world. He looks at Messi as someone he can learn from. Neymar is still a level below Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and those two are likely to remain the world’s best for a few more years, but he’s also nearly five years younger than Messi and seven younger than Ronaldo.
