Neymar is the most technically skilful player in the world ahead of Lionel Messi, according to Brazil legend Cafu.

Messi and Ronaldo have collected an incredible 11 Ballon d’Ors between them over the years.

But two-time World Cup winner Cafu has claimed Neymar is more technically skilful than the pair of them.

During a Skype interview with Fox Sports Brazil, he said: “Today, as far as technical skill, there is no player that is superior to Neymar, not even Messi, who I am a big fan of.
