Thiago Silva: Neymar Insulted Me

Thiago Silva: Neymar Insulted Me

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 25, 2018 08:31 AM @KurtLaduma

Brazil superstar Neymar has been criticised for sometimes showing a bad attitude in his country's first two 2018 FIFA World Cup games, and Selecao defender Thiago Silva has since claimed that his Paris Saint-Germain colleague even insulted him in their latest match.

The Highest-Paid Man Utd Stars After Fred Deal

The 26-year-old is the most fouled player at the tournament in Russia so far, although many of the challenges have arguably come from Neymar provoking defenders with stepovers and, often unnecessary, showboating.

Neymar was floored by his opponents on several occasions in Brazil's 2-0 win over Costa Rica on Friday, which led to him responding angrily when Silva, who was captain on the day, sportingly gave the ball back to their opponents after a stoppage in play.

In a press conference after the game, Silva revealed that he was disappointed in his teammate for disrespecting him.

"He's like a little brother to me; I try to look after him," he told O Globo.

"Today (Friday), he disappointed me, because he insulted me really badly when I returned the ball.

"He was right in that they had really got stuck into him, but we weren't going to lose the game because of that one ball."

Maradona: Players Had My Back, Messi Has No One

Brazil currently sit on four points from two matches, and will play their final Group E game against Serbia on Wednesday evening.

Do you think Neymar needs to work on his behaviour ahead of Brazil's next match? Let us know in the comments section below.

He needs to respect his colleagues. He is a superstar, we all know that, but disrespecting his national team teammates will cause divisions among the team.

How does Neymar provoke defenders to kick him when he is playing football?people with their European mentality of how football must be played must keep quiet...you want Neymar to just kick the ball and run like Messi? You are the reason soccer is fast becoming boring soccerladuma...Neymar is skilful,and he must use his skills...defenders tactle,no one tells them they must tackle that way and not that way...but people must not be kicked and placed in boxes. Don't justify nonsense...'Neymar provokes defenders with unnecessary step overs that is why they kick him' geeze!
