Neymar can be better than Messi - Pele

Pele has said that Neymar can be a better player than Leo Messi if he fulfills his potential.

Neymar has recently signed for Barceloan to play alongside the Argentine ace.

“I never think that [Neymar is better], although when people ask me about the comparisons and who is the best, I'll say, ‘If you see Neymar, he doesn't have the same experience as Messi after 10 years at a club’,” Pele told

“Neymar has really gone up the last two years. He can use both feet good and get up in the air.

“The difference that I try to explain to the people is that both are really good. I love Messi, I love the player.

“But to make the comparison, I think Neymar has the capabilities to play better than Messi...or maybe not.”
