The Samba boy gets the nod from his South American counterpart because of his willingness to work.
Atletico Madrid boss Simeone has explained that he would pick Brazil international Neymar for one of his teams before Kylian Mbappe.
The Paris Saint-Germain duo are the two most expensive players of all time, with kylian Mbappe one of the game’s undoubted rising stars after helping France to World Cup success at Russia 2018.
But while the teenager continues to generate headlines, largely for positive reasons, it is the former Barcelona man who the Argentine would prefer to have among his ranks.
Asked by Cadena COPE which of the players he would prefer, Simeone replied: “Neymar. In the Barcelona team of Luis Enrique, when he needed to work, he worked. Mbappe is more individualistic and doesn’t have a definitive role. Neymar has a fixed position.”
