Tite: Neymar Can Challenge Messi And Ronaldo For Ballon D’Or

Brazil head coach, Tite believes Neymar can be as good as Messi and Ronaldo and battle the duo for the ballon d’or.

Neymar quit Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain and many has stated his desire to step out of Messi’s shadow as a reason.

Tite has now backed the Brazil star to become a real contender for the personal accolade that has been dominated by Messi and Ronaldo.

“There are three players fighting for that position: Cristiano, Messi and Neymar,” said Tite.

“Cristiano and Messi are from a different generation – and Neymar will get there. That will depend on his performances, not on whether he plays with Messi.

“The essence is that he likes to play football. The important thing is that he is well and adapted in his new club. Values ​​and money do not change anything. He went to another club, as he said, to seek new perspectives.”
