‘Neymar Needs To Switch Sports To Leave Messi Shadow’

‘Paris Saint-Germain Neymar Needs To Switch Sports To Leave FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi Shadow’

By Keegan Kruger - Feb 22, 2018 09:32 AM @KeeganKruger

A former FC Barcelona teammate of Lionel Messi has insisted that Neymar should switch sports if he would like to leave the Argentine’s shadow. 

Man Utd Desperate To Sign Real Star?

The likes of Dani Alves, Pele and his father, Neymar Snr., all suggested that the 26-year-old had to leave the Camp Nou to showcase his talent and they backed his choice of club, Paris Saint-Germain.

While appearing on television on Tuesday night, former France international Thierry Henry was asked if he thought Neymar was stuck in Messi’s shadow during his time at the Catalan club.

"I don't know if Neymar left Barcelona to get out of the shadow of Messi. What is true is that all players are in the shadow of Messi and if Neymar doesn't want to be, he should change sport." Henry said, according to Sport.

The former Santos star has been linked with a return to LaLiga in recent months, with reports suggesting he could choose the colours of Real Madrid.

Henry, who played alongside Messi at Barcelona, made 121 appearances for the Blaugrana, scoring 49 goals and further assisting in 26 more.

ZZ2 vs Papa Charles: I've always told u to at least not comment on things u don't understand, u never comment based on facts but ur heart. @JOMMAK provide u with accurate stats but as always u want to make the argument about what ur heat says is relevant, stats are meant for everyone to notice what players does better and if u never seen any u are free to Google as well and if u don't have data u can ask we'll buy it for u so u can learn a little cos u clearly have no clue about football, u just love CR7 and u don't care if u make sense when u comment

I think Neymar was mistreated, he became more important to Barcelona than Messi in his last few games, but everyone still preferred Messi who was not as important anymore because of Neymar

Messi was always willing to learn from Ronaldinho and there was no talk of shadows or anything. Neymar and his prima dona attitude and allowing the media to control him is going to mess his career up.

And we're talking about the best footballer, not the highest winner of international titles...cos if we are, then one of Pedro or Sergio Ramos are the best players in the world...and that just doesn't make sense, does it? But then perhaps it does to you...who knows what's in that head of yours?

Here's the facts...at Real Madrid: Best goalscorer=Ronaldo, Best passer=Kroos, Best creator= Modric, Best dribbler=Isco....at Barcelona: Best goalscorer=Messi, Best passser=Messi, Best creator= Messi, Best dribbler=Messi....it is clear that Messi is equivalent to 4 Real Madrid players, so no question about what Henry is saying...

God created everyone within different proficiency, ie, Good, Better, Best and you cannot be all but one. So why if you are good you compare yourself with the better and if you are better why compare yourself with the best, you know your abilities so stay in your league but you can always improve, do not compare...

I don't know if Neymar left Barcelona to get out of the shadow of Messi. What is true is that all players are in the shadow of Messi and if Neymar doesn't want to be, he should change sport. Kikikiki I like the point, and my suggestion, competing with Usein Bolt would be a better choice for him.
