'I don't want to be the new Neymar'

Real Madrid winger Rodrygo insists he is not trying to be the new Neymar, after being compared to the Paris Saint-Germain star early in his career.

Rodrygo also came through the ranks of Brazilian giants Santos as Neymar before securing a big-money move to LaLiga.

The 19-year-old has already been called up to the Brazil national side, but he does not want to known as the new Neymar or Robinho.

"Since I began my career at Santos, they would call me the new Neymar or new Robinho," he told CBF TV, as cited by Marca.

"Robinho and Neymar are two big idols of Santos, of Brazil and of the clubs they've played for.

"Since the start (of my career) I've always had this burden, but I continue wanting to be Rodrygo and not the new Neymar."
