No one can deny the qualities of Neymar Junior, but the 28-year-old, according to Zico, is far from Messi and Ronaldo in terms of professionalism.
Neymar needs the professionalism of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to reach his potential, says Brazilian legend Zico.
The Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has scored 69 goals in 80 appearances in all competitions since the transfer to Parc des Princes where he was transferred for a record amount, 222 million euros in August 2017.
He has won every possible title in France, but frequent injuries have prevented him from helping PSG succeed in the Champions League.
“I really like Ney, the way he plays is fantastic. But he has to be professional like Ronaldo and Messi, who live for football, “Zico told Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“I talked to him and asked him to be more professional.”
He is 28 years old and PSG has a fantastic team. “They can win the Champions League.”
“It will depend on his qualities during the race, not just one match. Now Ney has more experience and is more prudent.
Neymar has returned to Brazil and is in self-isolation with his family
