Real Madrid wing-back Marcelo risks upsetting new teammate Hazard

Real Madrid wing-back Marcelo has risked upsetting new teammate Eden Hazard.

The Brazilian insists Neymar is the better player.

Hazard joined the Spanish capital club earlier this summer in a £89million move from Chelsea.

“Eden is a 'crackazo', a very high quality player, like Neymar," he told YouTube channel De Sola, “'Ney' has qualities to be in the world top five, it is impressive.

“Compare? You can not compare them, but Neymar is better for me.

“Neymar is an unpredictable player, very difficult to control. When the defender has imagined a movement to anticipate, he has already thought of another, and this is impossible to defend.

“Having Neymar in Real Madrid would be a huge pleasure, but I'm not the one who decides. Neymar is a great player and Real Madrid always has to do everything to bring the best players in the world."
