Pele: "Neymar needs time to grow"
The former Brazilian starlet, Pele, has spoken out about Seleção star and wonderkid, Neymar, saying he’s: “Five years behind Messi” and “Lacks experience” but is a top player.
Pele feels that the youngster still has a lot to learn but feels he will be one of the best attackers in the world game, Neymar just needs time and before he say he’s the best attacker in the world.
"I think Neymar can be the best player in the world, but there are players who are four or five years ahead, like Messi.
"Whether or not Neymar will become an idol in Barcelona is a question that I still can not answer, but I already said that I believe Neymar is one of the most complete players in the world.
"However, eight months in Europe and in Barcelona will be good for Brazil because he will have more experience heading to the World Cup." He told reporters, as reported by GOAL.com.
Since joining Barcelona Neymar has netted four goals in fifteen appearances, setting up eight goals.
