Neymar Urged To Follow Messi, Not Ronaldinho

Former Barcelona defender, Edmilson, has urged the Selecao captain to use Messi as his inspiration to ensure he reaches his full potential.

"Ronaldinho followed an erratic path, perhaps he had no one to advise him off the field," Edmilson told Caneda Ser.

"I hope [Neymar] follows the path of Messi, in the sense that [he should] grow every year and be the best for 10 years. 

"To reach the level of Ronaldinho, he has to enhance his decisiveness in big games. Ney is much like Ronaldinho, very cheerful, always happy.

Edmilson also commented on the speculation linking Neymar with a move to rivals, Real Madrid.

"Neymar has won five titles and that marks you at the club for the rest of his life. His dream was Barcelona, he chose it over offers from other teams, he would not leave the club for Madrid.

"I have no doubt, I know Ney and his father, they do not see him going to Madrid. He would. It would break the story he is writing here," he added.

"Neymar is still young but is excited about being the number one, and Brazilians are proud to have Neymar playing at this level. I am very pleased."
