Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves says Lionel Messi is better than Santos ace Neymar.

Alves plays with Neymar for Brazil.

"Neymar is a true phenomenon. However, for now, any player who is compared to Messi comes out badly," Dani Alves stated to reporters.

"He has a bright future ahead of him, but Messi is the undisputed best at the moment. His stats are simply amazing."
