Pele: Neymar goes down too easily

posted in: News | 0

Brazil legend Pele says
Neymar has to win the
World Cup to become one
of the world’s best players
and must stop going down
so easily.
Although the 22-year-old is known as one of the
brightest stars in world football at present, he has
developed a reputation for diving and going to the
ground under seemingly innocuous challenges.
And Pele believes that he can become one of the
best to have played the game if he can pick up a
World Cup winners’ medal in his career and learn to
stay on his feet.
“He still has to overcome some obstacles, especially
win a World Cup to be the best player in the world,”
the three-time World Cup winner told Bild Sport.
“He needs to change though. Neymar needs to get
his emotions under control and keep a cool head in
“And he has to learn to play standing up. He must
not go down too fast. Therefore, the transfer to
Barcelona was the best thing that could happen for
Brazil as teams in Europe play harder, the defenders
stay tighter to the man.
“He is on a good path. But he’s still far off what I
expected of him.”
