Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto prefers to ignore critics
Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto has insisted he does not take any notice of critics.
Having initially struggled when he first arrived from Atlético Paranaense in 2011, the 24 year-old has established himself as La Viola’s first choice stopper this season.
Neto understands that he will always be closely scrutinised because of the position he plays, but accepts that as part of the job.
“The role of a goalkeeper? Everyone scrutinises them, they’re like referees. But that’s normal,” he told Fiorentina’s official website.
“When you play in important Leagues there will always be critics, but since I was young I have always tried not to set too much store by them.”
