PSG star, Neymar reacted angrily after he was nutmegged in training by a 19-year-old Brazil wonderkid.
It doesn’t seem to be the best of times for Neymar, as he was filmed reacting poorly in training just days after he was replaced as captain of the Brazil national team for next month’s Copa America by Paris Saint-Germain teammate Dani Alves.
Right-back Alves, who has 138 caps for Brazil, was informed of his new role on Sunday. The country’s football federation (CBF) speaking on his replacement said;
“Daniel Alves will be captain of the Brazilian national team in the friendly matches against Qatar and Honduras and in Copa America Brazil 2019.”
Well, that is not the gist for today.
Neymar’s shameful reaction to being nutmegged by Cruzeiro ace Weverton in a training session this week. Is a big deal, as he seems to be losing his cool recently.
The 19-year-old wonderkid is not officially part of Brazil’s Copa America squad, but he has been training with the national team to gain some valuable experience.
The Brazilian youngster is already making headlines after pulling off a brilliant nutmeg at the expense of Neymar.
However, as many can imagine, it didn’t go down well with the PSG star.
Neymar dragged the youngster to the deck by pulling his bib before jogging off as if nothing had happened, leaving him on the ground.
Watch the video of the incident below:
You’d be mistaken to think that was the worse that could happen as there was more bad news for Neymar.
Neymar had to cut short his first full training session with Brazil ahead of the Copa America after the striker appeared to feel pain in his left knee.
The 27-year-old Neymar left the field in the Granja Comary training ground outside Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday alongside doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.
It was another setback for Brazil’s biggest star, who has only played four matches with Paris Saint-Germain since he returned from a broken metatarsal in his right foot on 27 April.
