Diego Maradona: Neymar needs help if Brazil are to win the World Cup
Diego Maradona has hailed the talent of Neymar, but believes Brazil will need more than just his talents to win the World Cup this summer.
The 53 year-old, who won the tournament in 1986 with Argentina, admits Neymar could lead Brazil to the title single-handedly, though will likely need others to step up for the Seleção to be successful.
“Should Neymar be the best player at the World Cup, then Brazil will probably win the title,” he told Sport BILD.
He added: “But it will be extremely difficult for Brazil to win the World Cup. Neymar is an extraordinary player, but he also needs 10 teammates at his side.
“For [Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe] Scolari it is very difficult to find the ideal XI. His predecessors did not have those problems.”
