Neymar weighs in on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi debate with one word answer

Neymar has used the same one word to describe both Lionel and Cristiano – ‘genius’.

The 30-year-old player was quizzed by DAZN to give one-word answers to describe some of football’s biggest names.

He used ‘genius’ three times in a row, first for the Argentine, then for the Portuguese player, and then for Uruguayan Luis Suarez.

After the host made a joke about the same adjective being repeated, Neymar laughed it off and said: ‘That’s my opinion!’

When Goal asked leading players to pick between Ronaldo and Messi, Neymar plumped for his former – and current PSG – teammate.

The Brazilian said: ‘Playing alongside Leo was a unique experience and we became friends.

‘Of those I’ve seen play, Messi is the best in history.’

DAZN also asked Neymar about some other contemporary players. After some deliberation, the Brazilian declared that England captain Harry Kane was ‘intelligent’, while he called ’s Karim Benzema ‘classic’.
