Brazil coach Scolari doesn’t see “anything different” about NeymarThe 22-year-old has been struggling of late
Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that he has spoken with Neymar and told him that he is a "huge" fan of him when he plays in a "different" position to the one he occupies for Barcelona.
The 65-year-old was speaking in an interview with the Globoesporte website in which he sought to absolve Neymar from any blame for Barcelona’s recent slump in form.
"Regarding Neymar, I don't see anything different about him. He's been playing the same way since he arrived there, and if there's a decline, then it's at the team level. He can't win or lose on his own. Nothing has changed in relation to the national team," said Scolari.
"He'll come home and will arrive extremely upbeat," Felipão said regarding Neymar's prospects for Brazil.
