Brazil forward Ronaldinho believes that his international teammate Neymar will become the world's best player over the next few years.

Brazil forward Ronaldinho believes that his international teammate Neymar will become the best player in the world.

The Santos forward is currently in the top three in the world according to his national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

However, Ronaldinho thinks that the 21-year-old is good enough to eventually become the planet's premier player, taking over the mantle from Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

"Messi for the last three or four years has been the best player in the world - he has been at a level of consistency I don't think the world has seen before," he told the Daily Mail.

"Neymar is young though, and I can't explain how special he will become. In the next two or three seasons he will become the best player."

Both Ronaldinho and Neymar will start when Brazil face England at Wembley on Wednesday.
