Neymar better than Ronaldo at 21, claims agent
The agent of Barcelona star Neymar believes his client is better now than Cristiano Ronaldo was at the same age.
Wagner Ribeiro, the representative of the former Santos striker, has responded to the Real Madrid attacker’s dig at the Barca man, reports Goal.com.
The Portugal international's representative, Jorge Mendes, stated at the weekend that "there is no way Neymar is as good as Ronaldo".
However, the Brazilian's agent has a rather different point of opinion on how it all adds up.
"Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo were born on the same day, February 5," Ribeiro wrote on his official Twitter account.
"But at Neymar's age, Cristiano Ronaldo was a mediocre player.
"Right now, he only surpasses Neymar when it comes to his weight."
Neymar joined Barcelona from Santos earlier this year after lifting the Copa Libertadores with his club in 2011 and winning the Confederations Cup with Brazil this summer.
