Juliano Belletti: ‘Neymar can be the best player in the world soon’

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have established dominance over the battle for the most prestigious individual award in the world of football, but Former Barcelona defender Juliano Belletti believes that his compatriot will reach the top quite soon.

“Neymar can be the best player in the world soon,” he said, speaking at the launch of the 2017 International Champions Cup in New York.

“He knows about the pressure, he has more experience on the pitch and he is in the best team in the world. He’s a Brazilian, of course, which is good, but Barcelona have something Brazilian in the kind of match [they play].

“So it is good for Neymar. We will see a better Neymar in all of the [coming] years.”
