In an interview with Oh My Goal, Neymar was asked to name five players he considered more technically gifted than himself.
The PSG forward replied: “More technical than me? I don’t know if I can answer that!
“With all the humility in the world, I consider myself one of the most technical players in football today.
“But I would say… Messi, Hazard, De Bruyne, Verratti, I’m still missing one?”
The Brazilian finally added: “More technical than me… Thiago!”
Interestingly enough, Neymar excluded Cristiano Ronaldo, who has dominated world football alongside Messi for the past decade.
Ney also had no room for PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe on his list.
