Brazil legend, Ronaldinho has stated that Brazil captain, Neymar is his heir.
Neymar made his national team debut at 18 and has scored 46 goals in 69 games.
And with Neymar also wearing the same number 10 shirt that has been worn by Ronaldinho.
“Without doubt, Neymar is already my heir,” he told Marca.
“He is performing in that role and he has been for many years.
“He is a great player and he will be the face of Brazil for plenty of seasons to come.”
Neymar sits alongside Barca team-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo as the three finalists for the 2015 Ballon d’Or.
But Ronaldinho believes there is no favourite for this year’s crown.
“Any of the three is worthy of winning with the year they had,” Ronaldinho said.
“Messi, Cristiano and Neymar have been outstanding for their clubs and they all can win it.”
