star 

Neymar 

praised his teammate

Marco Verratti

and compared him to

Xavi

and

Iniesta

.

Verratti plays a pivotal role in the midfield between Paris Saint-Germain and Italy and is one of the most influential players on both teams. He has a great ability to keep the ball, creating chances and dribbling, which reminds Neymar of his former teammates, Xavi and Iniesta.

He said:

“Two of them, [Kylian] Mbappé and [Marco] Verratti. Mbappé is young, fast, a great player. I knew Verratti was an excellent player, but I didn’t realise he was so spectacular. A genius.

“He’s one of the best midfielders I’ve played with, along with Xavi and Iniesta.”

Neymar was a teammate of Messi in

Barcelona

between 2013 and 2017 and won many honors with the Argentine star. Now the two have become teammates in Paris Saint-Germain and Neymar is happy about this.

“I am really happy to have [Leo] Messi at PSG. He is not only an idol but also an ace, a genius and a friend. When you have friends by your side the day is lighter and more relaxed. Hopefully, we’ll write history as we did at Barcelona,”

Neymar added.
