The three-time FIFA World Cup winner recently spoke about Neymar's role in the current Brazil team, saying he feels he is ready to be the leader of the new side.

Pele chatted about his countryman in an exclusive interview with FIFA's website, saying Neymar is technically the best player in the world.

"He's ready (to lead Brazil), yes," Pele said.

"He might find that the tactical switch from his club to the national team isn't straightforward, but Neymar is Brazil's key player. He has to prepare himself for that.

"And I would go further: for me, technically, he is already the best player in the world. I'm absolutely sure of that."

The good thing about the current Brazil squad is that everybody puts a great effort into their game while Argentina has some issues that need to be resolved. They need to stop expecting Messi to do all the work while they sit back. They all need to fight for this world cup.
