Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has praised Manchester United duo Rafael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In an interview with DAZN Football, Neymar heaped praise on the former Real Madrid star who he shared the pitch with on several occasions during El Classicos when he was at Barcelona.
Neymar has been asked for a one-word verdict on many stars, including Ronaldo.
In Ronaldo, he called the 37-year-old a genius.
He said the same about his friend Lionel Messi, who, along with Ronaldo, is widely regarded by fans as the greatest player of all time.
Another Premier League player Neymar has commented on is Harry Kane, who he thinks is smart.
Ronaldo – genius
Messi – genius

The 30-year-old has also praised Manchester United defender Varane, who arrived at Old Trafford last year for £41m including bonuses.
“I played against Varane several times,” Neymar said.
“He’s a very good central defender. He’s quick and smart.
“He is very well placed. He is a high level player. »
“He almost never makes mistakes. That’s why he wins so much.
