Carlos; Neymar has to settle for third place


Brazil legend Roberto Carlos believes compatriot Neymar did the right thing leaving Barcelona, but insists the forward faces a wait to claim the top dog tag while Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are still about.

Neymar has made no secret of the main motivation behind his move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, insisting that he would never win the Ballon D'Or while in the same team as Messi.

The Argentine and has shared the sport's top individual honour with Ronaldo for the past 10 years, with each star taking the award home five times.

And Carlos believes they will continue to do so for the forseeable future, calling on Neymar to have a touch of patience.

'I think he did well to sign at PSG,' the former left back told France Football.

'To be the best in the world he had to leave Barca because there is Messi.
'Even if he must be aware that, as long as Messi and Ronaldo are in form, he will have to settle for third place.'

It has been a frustrating season for Neymar who is set to sit out the rest of the domestic campaign in France after undergoing surgery on a foot injury.

He sat out Brazil's two recent friendlies as they beat World Cup hosts Russia and then Germany during the international break.

He is expected to be fit to lead his side in this summer's tournament, where a standout performance could go a long way to determining the destination of the next Ballon D'Or.
