Dani Alves Believes Neymar Will ‘Reinvent’ Himself
Neymar’s good friend and PSG teammate Dani Alves thinks that the criticism the player faced at this summer’s World Cup will help Neymar to mature and to reinvent himself.
The Brazil forward faced intense criticism for perceived histrionics during the tournament, which has harmed his image. Long-time friend Alves thinks the experience will benefit Neymar.
“Some things happen in your life to create maturity, this awareness of what you have to improve as a person, as a professional. When things are not perfect that is when you have to take a step forward, it's time to improve and reinvent yourself.
“I talked to Neymar a lot about that. I believe he is aware and more experienced. The scrutiny will create a maturity and we will see a change of behaviour. Like that, you stop being a boy and become man,” he told Fox Sports.
