Brazilian legend Cafu names player ‘technically’ better than Ronaldo and Messi

Brazilian legend Cafu has claimed his fellow compatriot, Neymar, is technically better than Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG star Lionel Messi.

Speaking at the Marca Sports weekend event in Seville, Cafu said: “Neymar is technically better than Messi, better than Cristiano Ronaldo, but he must assume the responsibility of a leader.

“One must dedicate themselves 100 per cent to football. I’m not better than Neymar, but I’m better than other right-backs because I dedicated myself to that. He [Neymar] has to become a captain.”

Neymar, 29, is yet to win the Ballon d’Or like Ronaldo and Messi.
