Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar picked two former Manchester United players as part of his creation of the perfect footballer.
The Brazilian is widely considered as one of the best players in the world and a core member of his club side, as well as at international level.
Neymar also fronts a yearly five-a-side competition alongside Red Bull, called Five, and has been speaking ahead of the latest edition.
He was asked how he would create the perfect footballer and it earned two former United players a mention in Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“Oh man…the perfect player?! [Should I consider myself or not?] I can consider myself, good,” Neymar replied.
“I think the physicality of Cristiano Ronaldo, Ibrahimović’s elasticity, the heading game of Sergio Ramos, Mbappe’s speed, left leg of Messi, my right foot, Lewandowski’s positioning, the tackling of Kanté and the creation in the middle field of Verratti.”
