Neymar Jr tops Asian popularity survey results with Messi and Roanldo
Neymar Jr, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are extremely popular in Asia according to results of a recent survey by the Octagon sports marketing agency. Neymar Jr tops the popularity survey along with Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. The survey results showed that Lionel Messi has the most popularity in Asia and as expected Cristiano Ronaldo is a close second. However, Neymar Jr. has quickly improved his ranking a lot and frequent match winning performances for Barcelona have earned him a place among the top most popular football players among Asian fans.
The agency also did survey on the most popular clubs in Asia and not surprisingly Manchester United is still the most popular club in Asia. The officials at Octagon were of the opinion that club particularities are largely based on their continuous success and the star players which play in them. For instance, Manchester United is still known as the club for which David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo played. However, with the presence of Lionel Messi and Neymar in Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in Real Madrid, the two clubs have increasingly become popular among the Asian fans.
It is safe to say that Neymar Jr. if continues with such tremendous form and ability, will soon become the most popular player not only in Europe and Asia but all around the world.
