Unai Emery believes that Neymar has the potential to capture Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best players in the world.

He worked with former Paris Saint-Germain head coach Emery Neymar for the first season in France after a পদ 222 million move from Barcelona international Barcelona in 2012.

The Spaniard, who left PSG in 2018 to join Arsenal, loved his experience with Neymar and continues to believe in the 28-year-old’s world-class ability.

“I had a great year with him,” Emery said in an interview with his assistant Granada coach Diego Martinez at Cephelia.

“I learned a lot from watching each training session and her reactions to the games.

“Neymar has the talent inside but also the ability and the qualities to perform.

“I think he’s got the chance to take the baton from Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and be the best player in the world, and he has the time to do it.”

Neymar has won six trophies in his three seasons at PSG, including one League 1 title each year.

The success of the Champions League has so far surpassed him in France, although the PSG had reached the quarter-finals of this season’s competition before the coronavirus stopped the big football.
