Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has questioned the treatment Neymar is receiving in Spain.

Felipão was at the Camp Nou on Tuesday to see the 22 year-old score in Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Atlético Madrid.

Speaking after the game, Scolari initimated that Neymar is not always used in his strongest position by Barça manager Gerardo Martino and suggested the forward shows his best form when playing for Brazil.

“I came to watch him [Neymar] and Dani Alves, Filipe Luís, Adriano…” he said, as reported by Football Espana.

“This can be Neymar’s World Cup, we can be sure of that.

“He hasn’t shone at Barça because they play differently. He’s better when he has space but they have him playing on the right.

“The Spanish Press has one opinion about Neymar and the Brazilian Press has another.

“For the national team he’s a special player and plays in a different way to how he does here.”
