The Brazilian forward spoke about his preferred position on the pitch."I like playing as a No.10 because I can control the game and help my colleagues," he added."I didn't ask [to be put at] this position and the coach preferred to put me there.
"I play in the same way I played at Santos and Barcelona, creating chances and shooting too, but at the PSG I play in a bit of a different way, although I like touching the ball."I don't want any comparisons with Lionel Messi."Neymar went on to talk about his talented teammate Kylian Mbappe."He is tough and I am very happy to develop by his side," he noted.
"He is a very offensive player who likes to win and when he doesn't win you feel it from his face after the game, it's something that may last a few days."
