Since we launched our SciSkill Index in 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were always battling for the number one position as most influential player in the world. Messi surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo on the list earlier this year. After breaking the record for highest transfer fee a few weeks ago, it is once again Neymar-time. At the age of just 25, Neymar reaches the number one spot on our SciSkill Index for the first time. This is also the first time neither Ronaldo nor Messi are the list leaders.
