Is Neymar the new Ronaldo or the new Robinho?

In Spanish, it is common for a football fan or pundit to refer to a special player as a ‘monster’. It means he has potent powers, superhuman strengths, astounding attributes. Lionel Messi, for example, is often called a monster. Un monstruo. Real Madrid target Neymar has also been described in this way, but when he was called a monster by Rene Simoes, the much-travelled Brazilian coach was talking in a much more literal sense.

The story is too old to be commented.

Robinho isn`t THAT good! Neymar will become a much better player!! I`m sure! Ronaldo was great, and would be difficult to end up better than he was. Unfurtunally a lot of injuring ended Ronaldos career:-(

... he's the new Tom Daley.

He was diving all over the place. Disgraceful.

Coming to england might help that a little. Going to spain will just encourage it

Neymar will become Copa Americas best player. What a talent!

He's got a LOT to prove yet, to be classed as "The new Ronaldo". Ronaldo was a beast by the time he turned 18. Even discounting the fact that he was awesome at dribbling, finishing and seriously two-footed, he was strong as an ox and quick as a deer(his knee suffered for it). Neymar looks too scrawny and lightweight for my liking.

we'll see how good he is in the copa america, hopefully not to good as it would raise his asking price.
