Neymar Father Hits Out At ‘Rough Treatment’ of His Son
Neymar’s father and agent, Neymar Senior, has hit out at the rough treatment his son receives at the hands of defenders, after the player picked up another metatarsal injury recently.
The Brazilian was taken off injured after a metatarsal injury which threatens to end his season prematurely. Last season, Neymar broke the same foot, missing the final 3 months of the campaign.
Neymar Senior cited the challenge in the 2014 World Cup semi-final that left the player with a broken vertebrae and some heavy challenges during last summer’s tournament with a lengthy post on his Instagram account.
“A stomp on his ankle [from Mexico's Miguel Layun] when he was out of the game. It was said that there was nothing and that, on the contrary, he simulated.
“He had VAR, he had the whole world watching, but anyway, he was considered 'guilty'. Can we not dribble? We do not have the right to have talent? He gets carried away!
"He believes that some in the press purposely insist on these facts to sell issues. As always, life goes on, football too and those who call themselves football experts, will continue to hold polls asking if 'Neymar deserves to be sanctioned!”
