Former Mamelodi Sundowns Coach: I Can't See Neymar At Real Madrid
A former Mamelodi Sundowns coach says he cannot see Neymar leaving Paris Saint-Germain for Real Madrid.
The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Los Blancos in the past few months, despite having joined the Ligue 1 giants at the beginning of this season for a world record fee of €222 million (R3.74 billion).
However, five-time LaLiga winner Hristo Stoichkov cannot see the Brazilian playing for his former club's biggest rivals.
"I don't see him at Real Madrid," the Bulgarian told Radio Marca.
"I wish him all the best for what he's doing, but I don't believe he's going to win everything he won with Barca."
The Blaugrana legend also gave his opinion on under-pressure Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane.
"Sometimes, in football, the greats suffer," he added.
"Real Madrid will need time to rebuild everything.
"Nobody doubts Zidane is a great coach but he has to have patience. Nobody can take away the titles he's won."
According to the club's official website, the 52-year-old made 335 appearances for the Blaugrana, scoring 162 goals along the way.
