Jamie Carragher says he now rates Raheem Sterling above Neymar and has compared his development to Cristiano Ronaldo during his time at Manchester United.

Carragher believes he now deserves to be mentioned int he same breath as some of the best players in the world and above PSG star Neymar.

He is now in the top five or six best attacking players in the world, in that group just below Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo,' he said to the Telegraph.

'I wrote recently he and Sadio Mane are the best left-sided players out there. I now rate Sterling above Neymar. His ambition, alongside Kylian Mbappe.'

Carragher then went on to compare Sterling's improvement in goal output to Cristiano Ronaldo's development at Manchester United.

I would go so far as to say there is a similarity with Cristiano Ronaldo's development at Manchester United,' he continued.

'As he does not take penalties or free-kicks like Ronaldo it is difficult to match his strike rate, but Sterling should certainly target 30 goals for City in this campaign and look to repeat those numbers for the peak of his career.'
