Cesc Fabregas, who rubbed shoulders with Neymar for a season at Barça, places him at the level of Ronaldinho. It also explains why Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez appreciate him so much.
Cesc Fabregas knows well Neymar. He rubbed shoulders with him for a season at FC Barcelona (2013-2014) and found him on the Ligue 1 grounds with Monaco. “It has been a long time since I played with him, but we faced PSG with Monaco and he killed us in both games,” smiled the Spanish midfielder in a live Instagram.
“His qualities are at the level of Ronaldinho”
The Spanish international praised the style of “Ney” which he compared to a former PSG legend. “His qualities are at the level of Ronaldinho, he says. He has everything to be the best”.
“He is a superstar who makes the difference when he wants to,” he said of the Brazilian, still very popular with Barça, three years after leaving PSG. “Messi, Luis Suárez and the others liked having him on their team because at any time he gives you a assist, a dribble or something difficult in a close match.”
“He’s like a child”
He also mentioned the character of the Parisian striker, often criticized for his behavior off the field. “Off the field, he’s a good boy,” he concludes. “He’s like a child, he’s always happy and loves life.”
