‘Cristiano only greater in weight’

Wagner Ribeiro has backed Neymar as the greater player over Cristiano Ronaldo, in response to Jorge Mendes’ claims yesterday.

In seeing the Portuguese star sign a new contract with Real Madrid, agent Mendes spoke of Ronaldo as being better than Lionel Messi and Neymar.

However, the latter’s representative has taken exception and offered his own view on the comparison.

“Neymar and Cristiano were born on the same day, February 5,” began Ribeiro in his response through Twitter.

“But at the age Neymar is now, Ronaldo was a mediocre player.

“Today he is only greater than Neymar in his weight.”
