Neymar slams teammates for not taking initiative
Santos star Neymar has slammed his teammates for not taking the initiative after their goalless draw against Náutico.
Neymar told reporters after the match: "It's a discussion that has to be solved on the field. I ask them to show up to play, not just look at my face waiting for me to do something. But I was not angry."
The Seleção forward warned teammates that they would have to contribute to the team: "The others are too much at ease. It should not be the case, everything a player needs to play well is here.
"There is no lack of structure, we have everything. Therefore you must contribute to the team."
When asked if he tired towards the end of the match he said: "When you run and get involved in the game, it's normal."
Santos held on to a draw after Náutico striker Kieza missed a penalty in the first half in a drab game.
