Ferguson praises Barcelona’s NeymarNeymar has potential to be world's best
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Barcelona forward Neymar has the potential to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at the summit of the world game.
"The boy Neymar gets a lot of publicity about the potential he's got, but I think that's still to be seen, still to be fulfilled," Ferguson said.
"Certainly, most people I speak to speak highly of the boy. When I had Anderson at United, he spoke volumes about the boy's ability. So hopefully he'll be the next one who'll produce the type of talent we see in Messi and Ronaldo.
"You'll always look at clubs like Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United to produce that kind of player you're talking about, but to be honest, I'm not sure there's one sticking out at the moment."
