Ronaldinho believes Neymar will follow in his and other Brazilians’ footsteps by making history at Barcelona.

Neymar has enjoyed a superb start to his Barcelona career since arriving at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2013, scoring 62 goals for the Catalan giants from 101 appearances, and Ronaldinho is convinced that his compatriot will achieve everything with his current employers.

"Yes, he's a great player and he's certainly going to make history," he told Marca when asked if he considered Neymar as his heir. "Neymar will repeat what other Brazilians have done before him."

Neymar has already written his name into Barcelona folklore, winning the Spanish league title, the Copa del Rey, the UEFA Super Cup and the UEFA Champions League since joining the club.

The Brazil international, who has already scored a remarkable 46 goals for his country, scored the third goal in Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final back in June - arguably the standout moment of his career of far - and the supporters at the Camp Nou love him.

Neymar is the world's third-best player

In the absence of Lionel Messi, who is currently sidelined with a knee injury, Neymar - along with Luis Suarez - has stepped up and provided the goals for Barcelona.

The South American forward has scored eight goals in eight La Liga appearances this term - including four in the 5-2 win over Rayo Vallecano - and is considered by many to be the third-best player in world football right now.

No player other than Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi has won the Ballon d’Or since 2008, but the world-class Neymar should give both superstars a serious run for their money throughout 2016.
