Jose Mourinho: What Neymar Must Do To Be Better Than Pele

Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has said that Neymar must achieve success with Brazil, before he can be compared with Pele.

Neymar has already staked a claim to being one of the best players in the world, having dominated Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain when healthy and achieved success at Barcelona.

However, the Brazil forward’s exploits on the international stage, have not matched his domestic success.

Though he has taken home Olympic Gold medal and triumphed in the Confederations Cup, success in the Copa America and World Cup have eluded him.

Neymar was recently named by Placar as the country’s greatest player since Pele, drawing criticism as it ignored other Selecao greats like Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Zico and Ronaldinho.

Asked by DAZN about the controversy, Mourinho said: “Neymar is a fantastic talent and nobody can doubt that.

“He came to Europe and won immediately.

“But I think they forgot players that were the best of the world at some point, such as Ronaldo and Rivaldo, just citing two, and I could remember more. They also came to Europe and were fantastic, but beyond that, they passed through this special situation in a country’s life that is succeeding on the international level.

“Neymar will keep fighting to be on Europe’s elite, where he already is, and this [winning with Brazil] will continue to be a dream for him.”
