Brazilian striker Neymar once again showed his admiration for Argentine striker Lionel Messi in an interview with fifa.com on the occasion of his 28th anniversary.

"Playing with Leo was a unique experience and we became friends. Of all the players I've seen play, Messi is the best in history," Neymar said.

The pair shared the pitch with Barcelona for four years and they won eight trophies together from the Champions League to LaLiga and Club World Cup.  

However, the Brazilian star also praised his current teammate Kylian Mbappé. Neymar believed that French striker could become one of the greatest ever. Kylian Mbappé is 20 now and Neymar says he is a "phenomenon".

"Kylian is a phenomenon. He has the potential to become one of the best players in history. To have him as a team-mate is a huge honour. We understand one another very well on the pitch and off it too. I love him," said Neymar.

"I wouldn’t say the strongest, but I feel a different atmosphere and more confident, and this helps a lot day by day," said Neymar when he was asked about the PSG squad and whether it's the best he has seen.
