Barca's Neymar

Neymar can become as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo according to Brazil coach Tite.

Neymar Jr.

The former Barcelona forward has been named in Brazil’s squad to face Ecuador and Colombia.

Tite has backed Brazil’s star player to develop into a regular contender for the Ballon d’Or.

“There are three players fighting for that position: Cristiano, Messi and Neymar,” said Tite.

“Cristiano and Messi are from a different generation – and Neymar will get there. That will depend on his performances, not on whether he plays with Messi.

“The essence is that he likes to play football. The important thing is that he is well and adapted in his new club. Values ​​and money do not change anything. He went to another club, as he said, to seek new perspectives.”
