Ronaldo wants Neymar to surpass his achievements

21983

Brazil legend Ronaldo believes Barcelona star Neymar is destined for greatness and can achieve even more success than him. The 23-year-old netted once in Barca’s 6-0 La Liga win over Getafe on Tuesday to equal Ronaldo’s figure of 47 goals for the Catalans and the two-time World Cup winner thinks his compatriot will only get better in the years to come.

“I sincerely hope that Neymar will surpass me in all aspects,” Ronaldo told ESPN Brasil.

“Neymar has a brilliant future ahead of him and is already performing marvellous at present.

“His performances will please the people of Brazil because he is a great idol.”

Neymar has scored 29 times in La Liga, 10 goals in the Champions League, seven in the Copa del Rey and once in the Supercopa de Espana.

Personally I believe, Neymar will somehow always be in the shadow of Messi he can never really be the main man for Barcelona. In terms of Achievements, he will definitely surpass Ronaldo who is the 5th alltime goal scorer for Brazil, Neymar is behind him by a mere 19 goals however I do not foresee him winning the world cup with Brazil.

#TBT : France vs South Africa 1998 WC

Little was known of France’s star players such as Thierry Henry and Zinedine Zidane, especially from African viewers such as myself. Being a young boy I anticipated the first world cup game South Africa participated in with huge excitement hoping that South Africa will show the world what we are made of, however Zinedine Zidane and co. had other ideas as they went on a complete rampage against Bafana Bafana.

The game ended with 3-0 to the host with Pierre Issa being the scapegoat for the own goal and terrible defending. The French went on to become World Champions,while South AFrica drew the rest of the group games managing to score three goals in total.

I Bewitched Ronaldo Claims A Ghanaian Witchdoctor

By Daniel  Chokoe

A Ghanaian witchdoctor has claimed responsibility for the injuries which is currently
threatening Cristiano Ronaldo’s participation  in the World Cup.

The Los Blanco star has been struggling with various injuries which have forced him to train
separately from his Portuguese teammates.

The Guardian now reports that witchdoctor Nana Kwaku Bonsam claims he has been the man
behind Ronaldo’s injuries.

He told Kumasi-based radio station Angel FM : “I know what Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is about;
I’m working on him,” Bonsam claims.
“I am very serious about it. Last week I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be
used in manufacturing a special spirit called ‘Kahwiri Kapam’.

“I said it four months ago that I will work on Cristiano Ronaldo seriously and rule him out of
the World Cup or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana, and the best thing I can
do is to keep him out though injury.
“This injury can never be cured by any medic; they can never see what is causing the injury
because it is spiritual. Today it is his knee, tomorrow it is his thigh, next day it is something
else.”

Ghana and Portugal have been drawn together in Group G. Being African I believe that witchcraft exists however I do not think it is strong to that extent. If it was really that powerful then Asamoah Gyan would have scored that penalty against Uruguay in 2010. If muti really worked then we would have had atleast five coubtries from Africa winning the world cup however that is not the case, this guy just needs to be reported to SPCA for animal cruelty period. Meanwhile some of us are hoping to see the world player of the year at his best this month.
