Add Ronaldinho's name to the list of current and former teammates who have gone on record about Neymar's rumored transfer to PSG.

The United States is used to being the best at everything, from income to athletics. When it comes to the economy of sports, there are two areas where America lags far behind its overseas counterparts: soccer and eSports.
