During an interview with "Oh My Goal", the PSG forward - at least in contracted terms- was asked about the greatest goalkeeper he had faced, the toughest and fastest opponents, and the most promising youngster in world football.
"Messi is the best player I've played with," he stated. "For me he's the best in the world and the best I've ever seen. Together we made a magnificent duo. It was a pleasure and an honour for me to play with him, and on top of that, he's my friend."

The Brazilian also pointed out Víctor Valdes as the best goalkeeper he has ever faced, and his current teammate at PSG, Kylian Mbappe as the fastest player he has seen from close. However, it was the Real Madrid captain that Neymar picked out as the toughest opponent.
