El Shaarawy: Neymar the best

Stephan El Shaarawy has given an interview to the Spanish Press claiming that Neymar is the best in the world.

The Italy international has quickly become integral to the Milan first team since his debut in 2011, and also forging a starting place for the Azzurri ahead of next year’s World Cup.

But the youngster has claimed that the best player on the planet is the Barcelona youngster.

“The best player in the world? I guess at the moment that’s Neymar,” he told Mundo Deportivo.

“I played against him and it was amazing.

“My idols? I have several. It is great to see Kaka back [in Italy], and Del Piero was also someone I looked up to.

“Totti as well is someone I like. It is a pleasure to play against him now.”
