Neymar, who has spent time at Santos, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, is one of the most popular footballers in the world, and he was tipped to step into the shoes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi since his teenage days.

Saka expressed the personal belief that the 32-year-old former Barcelona winger does not get the credit he deserves.

CorrectNG recalls that Inter Miami superstar, Lionel Messi said he is one of the few football players who has achieved everything in football.

He said in an interview with ESPN Argentina that he is lucky to have achieved everything on the individual and club level.

Messi also emphasised that there are few players who can say they have achieved everything in football like him.

He said; “If a movie had to be made, no one would have thought of it like that. That it happened the way it did after everything that had happened, the disappointments in the Copa América and World Cups, was extraordinary, impressive.

“She (The World Cup) is the most desired by everyone. Anyone dreams big and the biggest thing is to be a champion with your national team. I was lucky to achieve everything at the club level in Barcelona and also at the individual level. It was the only one I was missing. There are few players who can say they achieved everything. And thank God I’m one of them.

“With effort, sacrifice, work, and humility, in the end, you achieve your goals. The road can be hard, but you have to keep fighting for your dreams to try to achieve them. Sometimes it happens, other times it doesn’t, but you never have to stop to try it. I love playing ball, I love coming to the national team, I love being on the premises and before I couldn’t enjoy it like today”.
