Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar believes his teammate Kylian Mbappe, who has already won a FIFA World Cup, will go down as one of the greatest players of all time.
The Brazilian has performed something of a mentoring role for the 20-year-old striker in France, forming an important relationship with Mbappe on and off the field.
Neymar, 27, has compared the chemistry he has with the Frenchman to the that he had with Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona, and predicts that, like the Argentine, Mbappe can become one of the best players in the history of the game.
"The relationship I have with him is the best possible, both inside and out of the pitch," the Selecao talisman told Brazilian broadcaster Globo.
"I call him 'Golden Boy'. He's a boy for whom I have a very special affection, who will become one of the best players in football history, and I try to help him in the best way possible.
"Whatever attitude he has in training or in the game, I come and talk to him, or he comes to talk to me. It is as if he were a brother. By competition, this is not what leads us to winning titles, thinking of individual titles… it is not because of that.
"We do not envy each other. When he scores a goal, he wants to give me a pass, when I give him a pass, I want him to score a goal too. We have this partnership, as I had with Lionel Messi as well at Barcelona."
Mbappe has played 32 games across all competitions for PSG so far this season, scoring 29 goals and assisting a further 14 strikes.
