    Neymar is just bad. Look at his numbers these last years. Only fanboys still think he is one of the best. All the others see that he is nothing special...

    Imagine if Pele & Co, were playing with rules of today’s game back in their day? Anyway, enough of the day dreaming🤤. Neymar could play a 1000 games for his country, and he still wouldn’t have class! Yes, he can certainly play the game. But class is another skill altogether! And there is only one player that he has ever made a fool of. And that is himself.

    Steve you are a *tupid old clueless person, you want to proof someone is bad with your *tupid logic just because you don't like him..

    He is the top 3 scorer of all time for Brazil and he still has many years left to play football and it’s quite achievable for him to reach first position in that chart then how on earth he is not better than ronaldo or zico.

    You should only humiliate your opponents when it gives you a direct advantage like getting past them. What Neymar does is humiliate when their like 4-0 up and does unnecessary tricks.

    If Neymar had a better personality and didn’t dive so much, nobody would shut up about him. Of course he ain’t at that level yet, but the guys a genius.

    Neymar will easily overtake Messi and Ronaldo when it comes to international level. He is 27 and has 61 Goals and 41 Assists in 100 matches.
    But does that really mean THAT much ?

    Guys agendas aside, if we’re being real neymar is top 5 best brazilians of all time judging off ability and consistency. Ik he’s not won the world cup bla bla bla but still hes top 5 (61 goals and 41 assists in 100 caps)

    You could argue that Nicol and others are more disrespectful and ‘classless’ with the dismissive attitude of any league that isn’t the premier league and the way certain players are criticised and ridiculed. I just don’t understand the complaint here really.

    I get what Steeve saying, Messi as a young player used to dribble more than 10 times in a match but he always respected the players he played against, Messi and the other legends like Zidane, Ronaldo fenomeno, Maradona, Ronaldinho, Cruyff dribbled to pass their opponents and get close to the goal, and Neymar sometimes dribble just to make fun of his opponents.

  • Jean Didier Rukundo

    I understand one thing: that Man is saying those things because left Fc Barcelona...

    Neymar is not anywhere as good as Pelé. And it will never be. Neymar and Messi have never won a world cup for their respective countries.

    Those who love Neymar will tell you the exact same thing, he’s not hating on him. It’s all perfect comments. Neymar will never be great if he hasn’t returned to Barcelona while Messi is ready to pass the torch.

    My God, everything these people say about Neymar is Bad, Negative......They focus more on his personality instead of what he actually does on a footballing pitch. He has skills, what do you want him to do with it, not use? not have fun? of course he needs to make fool out of defenders..........we love that.....The guy is very close to become brasil's all time goal scorer and all you focus on is his personality? F...off.... what kind of a pundit are you that can't see the other side of a footballer? why is cantona hailed as a great when he also had a bad atitude...you just hate Neymar plain and simple....Nothing good of him will come out of your mouth....You talk about the olimpics not being worth mention.......But in Brazil winning it was an obssession......He also won the confederation cup....... CR7 won the UEFA league of Nations or whatever and that is counted.......Bias piece of garbage
