​Cascarino: Man City striker Sterling better than Neymar

Tony Cascarino believes that England star Raheem Sterling will win the Ballon d'Or one day!

He also believes the Manchester City winger is a better player than Brazilian star Neymar.

Sterling was in fine form as England raced to a 4-0 win over Bulgaria in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

"I would definitely argue he's in the top five players in the world," Cascarino told talkSPORT.

"What excites me about Sterling is the improvement. The improvement has been dramatic.

"If you were to put him on the market tomorrow, Man City wouldn't take £150million for him.

"If he continues to improve, he'll become the first or second (best player in the world) and probably win the Ballon d'Or along the way.

"If he wins the Champions League with Man City and plays a big part in that, and he scores a lot of goals over the course of the season, he'll have a great chance of winning it (the Ballon d'Or)."
