In difficulty and lacking in confidence since the elimination of Brazil in the quarter-finals of the World Cup, Neymar has been harshly criticized by some observers like Daniel Riolo. But while criticism of his level of play is increasing, the PSG star can count on the support of Jérôme Rothen, a former Parisian player.
Recruited against a check for €220m in 2017, Neymar is often the target of criticism. It must be said that with the price of this transfer, the requirements are stronger. And some, like Daniel Riolo, expected better from the former star of the FC Barcelona. ” Do we realize that Neymar, in terms of recruitment and salary, is the biggest flop in the history of football? I can’t think of a bigger flop for what it cost. Just because he was good in two Final 8 games in 2020 doesn’t mean it’s going to save your life. And also against Bayern Munich in 2021 “had proclaimed the editorialist at the microphone of RMC.
