Just two months before the start of the World Cup, the tension arises between Brazil and Spain. Does this have anything to with the World Cup? Far from it! Neymar: the apple of discord. And this time, it is the coach of Auriverde, Luiz Felipe Scolari, who supports the Iberian media.
the underside of the financial transfer of Neymar and his footballing relationship with Lionel Messi make people talk. Former leading figure of Barcelona, Johan Cruyff even stated that the leaders had committed a serious error by recruiting so early a young player who now imposes enormous pressure.
Present in Lisbon for a press conference, the Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has therefore taken charge to defend his player. And for Felipão, the origin of all the media fuss around the neo Catalan is just an Iberian media conspiracy. “The Neymar case is very simple, it only those who don’t want to know anything who do not see anything. Neymar is often criticized by the Spanish press that has an interest in if he is not valued in Spain for the World Cup. But we know he is good, he is a genius. Neymar was decisive for Barca against Real Madrid and Espanyol. In the last game of the Champions League against Atlético Madrid, he has once again been decisive. He resolves situations of game. It is fair to consider him as the best player in the world because he plays well. “
These words will not pass unnoticed in any case in Spain whose football relations with Brazil are decidedly complicated ahead of World Cup 2014. Besides the Neymar case, Brazil already criticized the leaders of the Spanish Football for having picked their colchonero striker Diego Costa, Brazilian-born, but naturalized Spanish.
