Video: Neymar chooses Brazil's Ronaldo over Cristiano Ronaldo
Brazilian superstar Neymar chose fellow countryman Ronaldo over three-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and also said that he would have liked to play alongside Ronaldo, Romario and Pele if granted the opportunity.
The 24-year-old spoke to Copa90's YouTube channel in an enjoyable interview. In the funny video, music artists Poet and Vuj asked him various question ranging from his music career to his favourite players.
Neymar answered all the questions in a light-hearted manner as he said did not take his music career seriously. When asked which players he would like to team up with for a music single, the Barcelona forward named his clubmates, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
The skillful striker did not hesitate to answer that he would like to link up with Brazilian legend Ronaldo as he did not get to play alongside him for a longer time. "I played with Ronaldo a little bit, but not enough. But I would have loved to play with Ronaldo, Romario and Pele," he said.
He expressed his feelings on winning the gold medal at the Rio Olympics earlier this year. When asked if he had dyed his hair blond because of the gold medal, Neymar answered that it was because of a promise he made prior to the Olympics.

He said, "At the moment I can't believe it really happened. It hasn't really sunk in yet.” Speaking about his hair he added, “No, it was a promise. Before playing the Olympics I promised my friends that if I won the gold medal at the (Olympic) Games I would dye it all blond. We won it and so I dyed it all.
Neymar laughed hysterically when asked if Aaron Ramsey inspired him to dye his hair. The Brazilian jokingly said that he tried to persuade Suarez into dyeing his hair blond along with Messi, but the Uruguayan could not be convinced.
In a rapid fire round that concluded the interview, he chose mango over watermelon, Beyonce over Rihanna, and Drake over Kanye West. He even mentioned that he danced to Beyonce's hit single ‘All The Single Ladies’ for a commercial once.
The last question gave him a choice to pick one of the number 9, Ronaldo, or the number 7, Cristiano Ronaldo. He answered, " R9. Ronaldo Fenomeno, the authentic."
