Neymar has now been urged by Jorge Jesus to change his game so that he could be a great footballer.
"In my view, Cristiano is the best and I have no doubt about that affirmation. He epitomizes what the game is about.
''He doesn't just score 10 or 20 goals but bangs in 30, 40 or even 50. Messi is a different type of player and at present in the world, they are the best.
''Neymar could be one of the all time greats if he had Cristiano's mentality,'' Jorge Jesus explained.
Meanwhile, after failing to secure a return to Barcelona, Neymar will stay at Paris-Saint-Germain until January 2019 when he can then think of a move if the club agree to sell him.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Brazilian football legend Rivaldo urged his fellow countryman Neymar to leave Paris-Saint-Germain this summer and also end his partying days.
Neymar's future at Paris-Saint-Germain is currently not certain with reports claiming that he could face the exit doors when the January transfer window opens.
