Pele: Neymar right to step out of Lionel Messi's shadow
Pele believes fellow Brazilian Neymar made the correct decision to join Paris St Germain due to being in the shadow of Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
Neymar completed a world record £200.6million transfer over the summer and has settled well in the French capital with three goals in as many Ligue 1 games.
His switch divided opinion but three-time World Cup winner Pele, arguably the greatest striker of all-time, feels Neymar will now be able to take star billing at the Parc des Princes, with the presence of Messi denying him that privilege at Barca.
The 76-year-old told Marca: "At the moment the best player in Brazil is Neymar and I think the move for him was very good because there was huge competition with Messi at Barcelona.
"I think it's a good opportunity for him and he needed to move because now he can really play and show what he's capable of."
However, he added: "It's also very dangerous when you get given that responsibility."
