'Neymar Is On Messi's Level And Would Walk Into Every Premier League Team'

'Neymar Is On Messi's Level And Would Walk Into Every Premier League Team'

Jamie O'Hara believes Neymar is on the same level as his former teammate Lionel Messi after seeing the Brazilian turn it on in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 win last night.

With his supreme dribbling and creativity in full flow, the Brazilian assisted compatriot Marquinhos' equaliser and then conjured up the most delightful pass through to Kylian Mbappe, who picked out fellow substitute Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting for a dramatic stoppage-time winner.

Neymar equalled Messi's record for the most dribbles in a Champions League game after completing a ridiculous 16 take-ons and O'Hara thinks he showed he's on par with the six-time Ballon d'Or winner with his performance.

"Neymar starts in every single Premier League team," O'Hara stated on talkSPORT.

Then when hosts Alan Brazil mentioned about Liverpool's front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, the former Spurs and Wolves midfielder replied: "Yep, he's better than them.

Former Footballer Claims He Was Better Than Neymar, Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo

"He's a match-winner, that's what he does, his talent speaks for itself, he does things no one else can do.

"He's on a level with Messi in terms of his ability. He will win a game on his own. He walks into every Premier League team, he walks into every team in the world."

Neymar tends to split opinions amongst football fans and pundits alike - and exactly that happened last night when Jamie Carragher and Peter Schmeichel had a disagreement regarding the Santos youth product.

Schmeichel, who was was a pundit on CBS Sports for the game, wasn't impressed with Neymar's first half showing - which led to former Liverpool defender Carragher jumping to his defence.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Schmeichel said, "Please don't cry" to Carragher, who would later have a priceless reaction to Neymar turning it on late on.
