Kaka tells Neymar to change his name if he wants to become the best player in the world

Neymar has had a good week.

The Brazilian was the driving force behind THAT remarkable comeback for Barcelona against Paris Saint-German on Wednesday night, scoring a free-kick and a penalty to turn their 3-1 lead into 5-1 and set the stage for that barely believable Sergi Roberto winner.

It was the type of performance which indicated why many people feel the Brazilian is the heir apparent to the best player in the world throne which has been squabbled over by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for a while now, with the 25-year-old perfectly placed to end their duopoly.

And he’s now been given some pretty stellar advice on how to make that leap by a man once considered to be the best in the world – it’s just that it is pretty odd advice.

Because Neymar’s fellow Brazilian Kaka – who won the 2002 World Cup and was once the world’s most expensive footballer when he moved from Milan to Real Madrid – claims that if the national idol changed his name, then he’d be even better.

Speaking to Record TV in his homeland, Kaka said: “With everything that he’s done at Barcelona, Neymar could well be next in line to be the best player in the world.”

“But I think if he changed his name to ‘Reymar’, he’d have an even better chance.

“All the successful Brazilians begin with the letter ‘R’.”

Reymar, eh? Let’s just weight that up for a second…

If he did change it, he’d be following in the footsteps of…
