Erstwhile Brazil star Tostao has said that Barcelona forward Neymar plays better than the ever praised Romario and Ronaldo.

He encouraged the 24-year-old player to emerge the best in huis country excluding Pele.

lthough Neymar still remains back of Ronaldo and Romario in Braszil’s goal scoring chart yet Tostao still believe that ex-Santos is ahead of both star attackers.

In his words, “I do not know whether Neymar will become the best player in the world, but there is no doubt about it that he is a phenomenon and a spectacular player,”

 “He has all the skills an attacker needs to have. He shoots well, is intelligent, passes well, draws fouls and is very fast. He might not be there just yet, but he can become Brazil’s greatest ever since Pele.

“He is better than Romario and Ronaldo, more complete. He has it all. Romario and Ronaldo were great at certain specific things.

“He is not the best in the world right now because of the presence of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. But he is better than others who were the best in the world in their days, like Rivaldo, Kaka and Luis Figo.

“Of course, he still has room for improvement, but his figures are impressive.”
