Mano: Neymar won't be rested
Following a suggestion from Santos manager Muricy Ramalho that Neymar be rested for the upcoming fixtures with Argentina, Brazil boss Mano Menezes has insisted that the starlet will play.
Neymar, 20, has looked tired in recent weeks after an 18-month stint with very little rest. Indeed, the youngster has already played over 50 matches in the 2012 calendar year alone.
Despite the suggestion, from a manager who has been unable to use his star player at club level for much of the summer, Mano Menezes has responded by suggesting it is Santos who don't allow the youngster to rest.
"I think he is able to rest more when he is with us (national team) than with Santos," Menezes told reporters on Tuesday. "With the Brazil squad us he trains, eats, rests and plays.
"He has become the most important player in Brazil and I don't see how we can leave him out of the team."
