Shandong Luneng Taishan midfielder Walter Montillo has hailed the talent of his former team-mate Neymar.
The Argentina international, who joined Shandong for €7.5 million in January, played alongside the Barcelona prodigy at Santos and rates him as one of the best players in the world.
"I am lucky I have the experience of playing alongside players like Neymar,” he told FIFA.com. “I think he is among the top three stars of the world, alongside Messi and (Cristiano) Ronaldo. I have learned a lot from him. He gives me inspiration as I target a national team return."
