Former Paris Saint-Germain defender, Dani Alves, has compared Lionel Messi with Neymar, claiming that the Argentine is more focused on scoring goals.
Messi and Neymar have been in fine form so far this season for PSG.
While the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 12 goals and provided 14 assists in 18 games this campaign, Neymar has 14 goals and 11 assists in the same number of games.
Speaking to Brazilian news outlet Globo, Alves highlighted a minor dissimilarity between his two former Barcelona teammates, saying:
“Neymar and Messi are similar. Players who can see a little more than the rest, with one particular feature: Messi is obsessed with scoring goals.
“All he does is think about scoring goals. Neymar is more juggling, Cirque du Soleil.”
