Angeliño, defender of Leipzig compared PSG player Neymar with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
“What Neymar did in the Champions League match [in August] against us was a shock to the team. It was a player of a different level. That day, I was amazed at how he was able to change the course of the match,” said Angeliño to As.
“At that time, we had no idea how we could prevent him from getting the ball, from controlling the game. It didn’t seem to be possible. I was very impressed, and it was great that he was not playing on my flank.”
The player was also asked who is better: Neymar or Messi.
“He is another monster. Messi doesn’t go down as often to get the ball as Neymar does, he waits. But when the ball reaches him – bang, bang! The ball is in the net. What are you going to do here? ”
“Neymar comes down to the center of the field. You start to move in one direction – and he turns around and runs the other. You put your foot out – and the ball has long been in another place. It was amazing.”
