Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar insists he is ‘learning every day’ from Cristiano Ronaldo and former teammate Lionel Messi.
The Brazilian has said that learning from the best players in the world is the only way to improve his own game and to try to reach that level.
“I played with Messi, who is, for me, one of the greatest footballers of all time, and he is my idol in football,” Neymar told the Players Tribune.
“With Messi, I learned every day, whether during our practice, or playing with him, or just watching him play.
“That made me stronger and it increased my capacity on the field because I kept learning a lot from him.
“As for Cristiano, he is a monster. Facing him is a pleasure and an honour, but we have to be more prepared. He is one of the greatest in football, so you get smarter, you get alert, but at the same time you learn a lot, too.
“So, they are two of the big guys that I can relate to, because I want to learn, I want more, I want to win, I want more trophies, score more goals. So, I keep learning from them every day.”
