Brazil star Neymar has admitted former Chelsea star Eden Hazard has more technical ability than him.

The 30-year-old forward, who is considered one of the best players in the world, hasn’t been shy to show off his incredible flair and skill on the pitch for club and country.

Speaking to Oh My Goal via Sportsbible, Neymar showed the confidence in his ability by claiming that he is one of the most technically gifted players in world football today.

The Brazilian superstar, who crashed out of the World Cup at the quarter-final stage with Brazil, revealed five players who he believes are more technically gifted than him.

When asked the question about players who are more technical than him, Neymar responded: “More technical than me?! Well, more than me…

“I don’t know if I can answer that, with all the humility in the world I consider myself one of the most technical players in football today.

“But I would say Messi. A player that I’d like to play again with today, clearly it’s Messi because he’s number one, the greatest of all. Every club, every player loves him. Everyone wants to play with him.

“I would say Messi, [Eden] Hazard, [Kevin] De Bruyne and [Marco] Verratti. I’m missing one, right? More technical than me… Thiago.”
