The Brazilian legend believes that Barcelona star Neymar is better than four-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

During an interview with UOL Esporte, Pele said that Neymar is technically way better than Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Pele feels that his countryman is also to the same standard with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Even though Ronaldo has been the best player in the last one year, Pele claims that Neymar should be treated the same way as the former. The three-time world cup champion further added that Ronaldo is better when using his head, unlike Neymar.

Pele admits that Neymar is not much of an aerial threat and lacks his ability in the air. He claims this is the only aspect Neymar is not superior to that of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

Both these superstars share their birthday on February 5th, when Ronaldo turns 32 and Neymar turns 25 this year. Pele believes that Neymar will become the best player in the world in future.

Despite Ronaldo’s achievements in his career both at the club and international level, Pele says Neymar is better than Real Madrid forward. The four-time Ballon d’Or winner was constantly compared with Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi over the last decade.

“The only problem that Neymar has is heading,” Pele told UOL Esporte. “Cristiano Ronaldo is not better than him.”

“Technically, Neymar is way better, but he [Ronaldo] is better when using the head. You don’t see Neymar scoring with the head, and that counts,” Pele said.

Pele’s father Dondinho is considered one of the greatest headers of the ball in the game’s history. His father once scored five headed goals in a professional game in Brazil.

Pele helped Brazil to World Cup titles in 1958, 1962 and 1970, and is considered as one of the best to play for the nation. The Brazil legend insists that the national team and the new manager Tite are on the right path.

Pele said “One of the things that gave me most satisfaction was to see Tite’s approach. Brazil always had good players – since the time of Leonidas, Brazil always had great players. But what was our problem? We didn’t have a team.”

“I like his interview, he said: ‘Oh, let’s play these games only with Brazilian players who are here. If we need you, we will call you. But first, we give the chance to those who are playing here [in Brazil]. Good players, new players.’

“Tite is trying to do what Brazil always did. I hope that it works, Tite is on the right path.”
