Known for his outspokenness, sports consultant Daniel Riolo strongly criticized Neymar’s performance on Wednesday night in the Champions League.
The teammates of Lionel Messi did not manage to afford the three points of victory, on the lawn of the Jan Breydel stadium in Bruges, against the local team (1-1). A mixed start for Parisians who could not find the solution offensively. In order to explain this European underperformance, Daniel Riolo mentioned the lack of rhythm of the Pulga and of Neymar. The latter took it on his own.
« As long as we don’t have the lucidity to understand that you can’t play with guys who don’t run on the field… And especially not two! Again Messi, in not very long, he will be in good shape, confided the consultant on RMC. The real question: can Neymar play football again? Do you see his physique? Yes it will replay, but at what level? His physique has changed, his bodily attitude too. Neymar the genius, he’s a fine guy, who flies, he’s a kind of butterfly, it’s Mohamed Ali in his heyday in boxing. A nimble guy. There it is heavy, it can still do one or two blows like that. He now has the physique to look good on a yacht in Ibiza. »
