Del Bosque: Neymar is a good player but he does a lot of stupid things

Vicente del Bosque chatted to Cadena SER’s El Larguero programme about the best players in the world right now and confirmed his coaching days are over.

Vicente del Bosque was one of the guests on Cadena SER’s El Larguero programme this morning. The former Spain coach gave his opinion on who, for him, are the best players in the world right now. He also made it clear that he won’t return to coaching and said he would be disappointed if there was a situation in which there were no Catalan clubs in LaLiga.

Messi is the best: “For me, yes, he’s the best. Messi is the best player of all-time but that’s not to take anything away from Cristiano Ronaldo. Last year, someone dared to claim that Cristiano Ronaldo was finished, that it didn’t matter if he left. Messi and Cristiano have no limits”.

Kylian Mbappé: “Mbappé has all the qualities to be Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi’s successor but he still has to fine-tune his game a little. The same thing can be said about Vinicius – even though he still has some way to go”.

As a player? Neymar: “Between Neymar and Mbappé – Neymar. He does a lot of stupid things and he’s not an example to follow at all, but as a player, he’s very good”.

Valverde and the ‘crisis’ at Barça: “Ernesto Valverde is more than capable of taking the situation forward at Barcelona”.
