Meanwhile, Neymar turned his attention to an "excellent" defender who he praised for his goalscoring abilities as well.
The 28-year-old Brazilian winger, who left Barcelona for PSG in 2017, named Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos as the best player he has played against.
"The best player I've faced? Sergio Ramos," Neymar told Oh My Goal.
"Because he's an excellent central defender and what's more, he scores goals. It's very difficult to play against him."
Neymar also opened up about his experience with Lionel Messi at Barcelona and insisted it was an "honour" to play alongside the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.
"For me, he's the best player in the world," the Brazil international said.
"The best that I've seen play. We made a magnificent duo, it was a pleasure for me and an honour to play with him. And on top of that, he's my friend."
