We know it won’t be possible for anyone to surpass Messi and Neymar says that is not his goal at the moment.
Messi has won the Ballon D’or four times in the past six years and has been regarded as the best the game has seen in a while.
Neymar has been tipped to rival Messi for the 2016 Ballon D’or, but the Brazilian forward says he is more focused on improving himself rather than surpassing Messi.
“It is not my goal to try to surpass Messi,” the 23-year-old told SporTV.
“I am just trying to follow my own career path. I want to keep on doing the things that I have been doing, to win titles and to achieve my goals.
“But I am not attempting to be better than any one else. My goal is to keep improving myself.”
