Ballon D’Or: Raheem Sterling tipped to win award
Former Marseille and Chelsea forward, Tony Cascarino, has claimed Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, is one of the top five players in the world and is better than Neymar.
Sterling scored and provided an assist in England’s 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifying victory over Bulgaria on Saturday.
Neymar made a goalscoring return for Brazil earlier in the week, netting in the 2-2 draw with Colombia after three months out with an ankle injury.
But for Cascarino, Sterling has surpassed him in recent seasons.
“Who would you rather have: Neymar or Sterling? I’d have Sterling as a player.
“Try to ignore the antics that have gone on with Neymar off the field, I actually think Sterling’s better on the field.
“His numbers are better and he’s playing in a better team. I’ve seen Neymar do things that no other footballer can do in the game, like a ‘Harlem Globetrotter’ footballer.
“But if you want a player to be brilliant for the team and score goals at the rate Neymar can, Sterling’s your man,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
