The players you mention are 'greater players' from an historical perspective. That said, in terms of talent and technical skills, I think he hasn't to be be jealous of Ronaldinho. Romario and Ronaldo are #9. Rivaldo is a greater player than Neymar obviously. 2018 was a unique opportunity to take power so of course, something is wrong with Neymar. This year, it would have been more profitable to keep a low profile, be more humble-superstitious-discreet especially when an injury makes him in a position not to be at 100%. Griezmann and M'bappé are not more talented but they are in a great position to win the World Cup: these 2 players are offensive but they have a healtier way of living football. The perfect plan for Neymar should have been: (1) 2017/18 I stay in Barcelona and let the media focused on Messi & co (2) I win the World Cup and reverse the established order (3) I join or acquire a new club like PSG after winning the World Cup As a PSG fan, I'm extremely happy to see him in France but it was in his interest to stay in Barcelona last summer to be fully focused on the World Cup all the season with the following calendar: (1) he starts well to gain confidence (2) he takes his foot off the accelerator to be fully fresh in the summer and win it Contrary to Lord @Enigma_87 , I don't think in terms of talent/leadership skills or understanding of the game but rather in terms of social behaviour.
