The 26-year-old, who dropped from the Ballon d'Or podium to 12th position this year, is considered one of the best players in the current game.

During a Q&A on his YouTube channel on Wednesday, the Brazilian was asked the question many football fans have debated over the past few years: who the better player between Messi and Ronaldo is.

"Ronaldo has gone from a winger to a striker and a goalscorer," Neymar answered, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"Rather than taking players on all the time, he has gone more one or two touches, getting in the box and scoring goals.

"Messi a bit of everything – you see him scoring goals from playing probably a deep midfield role at times, and where I'm probably still walking on the pitch, he’s scoring.

"So he is probably the best."

Neymar scored his 11th Ligue 1 goal of the season in PSG's 2-2 draw with Bordeaux last Sunday – it was also his 30th league goals since joining the French giants.

He scored those 30 goals in just 32 games, a record in the French top flight over the past 45 seasons, as ESPN pointed out.
