Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has stated on social networking site Twitter that Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen is better than Paris Saint-Germain ace Neymar.
The former United and Manchester City goalkeeper has stated that if he had to choose between the two players, then he would pick his Danish compatriot Eriksen.
Schmeichel was impressed with the performance of the Denmark international attacking midfielder during Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Real Madrid at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
I think Neymar is great, but after watching Eriksen last night I stand by my choice. Him any day over Neymar. Who would you go for?— Peter Schmeichel (@Pschmeichel1) November 2, 2017
Eriksen is one of the best and most creative midfielders in Europe, but Neymar is a better better and more talented footballer.
The Brazil international forward is world class, and his performances for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 and in the Champions League this season prove that.
Both players are 25 years of age, but the fact that Neymar was hugely successful during his time at Barcelona and is repeating his heroics at PSG underlines his superiority.
Schmeichel won the Premier League title five times and the Champions League once with Manchester United.
