According to a report in Mundo Deportivo, Brazil is furious with Neymar.
The Brazilian press has accused their star player of partying the night before their World Cup qualifier against Argentina, a match which Neymar was unable to play due to injury.
Brazil have already qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but Neymar’s behavior has ruffled some feathers. Following that, Brazil drew 0-0 with their arch-rivals Argentina, ensuring Argentina’s participation in the World Cup next winter.
Neymar has made eight appearances for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 this season, scoring three goals and assisting on three others. He’s played three games in the Champions League but has yet to score or assist. It was thought that playing in Pairs with his old Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi would inspire both of them to tremendous heights, but that hasn’t happened yet.
Neymar has, however, stated that the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 could be his last.
The Brazilian, who is only 29, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the amount of effort required to stay at the top. He has only won one major trophy with Brazil, a gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro; he was injured during their success at the Copa America in the summer of 2019.
Only three weeks ago, Neymar lambasted people who attacked his off-field life while ignoring his on-field achievements.
“I talk about respect because people say ‘Ah, Neymar doesn’t take care of himself, Neymar is this, Neymar is that,'” he said in an interview with Fuir Clear YouTube channel.
“How can you be at the top for 12 years without taking care of yourself? Nobody understands.
“I know how to take care of myself. I have a physiotherapist and fitness coach with me practically 24 hours a day. For what, for no reason?
“I quit when I could. I quit when I could when I knew I wasn’t going to train the next day. I wasn’t going to stop doing anything. What’s the problem?
“You have to criticize me for what I do on the pitch. There I allow you to speak. But not for what I do off the pitch.”
