Ronaldo has issued a warning to Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar as he told him to stay focus on recovery from his foot injury and avoid unnecessary pressure.

The former Real Madrid forward had a similar injury in 2002 and he warned Neymar to be cautious of the injury and pay a lot of attention to his well being.

"He needs to focus on his wellbeing and protect himself from the pressure as much as possible," he said at a Nike event.

"I'm sure that his recovery will be much quicker than mine and he'll be at the World Cup."

The Brazilian also retains high hopes for his national team in Russia.

"I've got a good feeling about the Brazilian team," he confessed.

"They've been through tough times but the last few years they've done incredible work and gained confidence.

"Neymar's injury is unfortunate, but I'm convinced that he'll be back for the summer and we can count on other very good players."

Neymar is expected to miss the rest of the season with PSG but he will recover in time for the World Cup.
