Neymar plans to emulate Messi by mentoring Mbappe

The relationship between Neymar and Kylian Mbappe continues to blossom, with the Brazilian looking to follow Lionel Messi's example in guiding the teenager.

The elder statesman of the two despite being just 25 years of age, Neymar plans to look after his young team-mate in much the same way Messi mentored him at Barcelona.

Asked if Mbappe was his new best friend, Neymar replied: "He is, indeed. He is a golden boy and he's been doing very well.

"He's a great player and has all the qualities to become one of the big names in football. I wish him all the best and I will help him in everything I can.

"Hopefully, I can do for him the same thing that Messi has done for me."
