PSG star Neymar rated above Zlatan as Roche says: He's charming. A team player

Neymar has quickly taken over the mantle from Zlatan Ibrahimovic as PSG's big new hero.

Indeed, there's some inside French football claiming Neymar's impact is already far greater than what the Swede achieved in his time with PSG.

After playing against the Brazilian, Guingamp midfielder Lucas Deaux told Le 10 Sport: "It was fun to measure my powers with a master. I'm probably going to sleep hard, I was very impressed, not even Zlatan Ibrahimovic impressed me like this."

Former PSG star Alain Roche also weighed in: "Neymar and Zlatan are completely different. Neymar is a charming guy who is nice to everyone, he is used to the big pressure you usually wear when you're a big star.

"It feels like his attitude is appreciated by his teammates."

Ibrahimovic is currently working his way back from April knee surgery in the hope of landing a new contract with Manchester United.
