'Neymar is Pathetic, I Wouldn't Like To See Him After A Flu Injection!'

'Neymar is Pathetic, I Wouldn't Like To See Him After A Flu Injection!'

Brazil superstar Neymar's behaviour against Mexico on Monday has been branded as "absolutely pathetic" by a former Premier League manager after the forward was accused of excessive play-acting in the Selecao's 2-0 win.

Mexico Star Lashes Out At Neymar's Play-Acting

The 26-year-old, who led his country to victory over El Tri in the 2018 FIFA World Cup's round of 16, is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons again after reacting dramatically to an off-the-ball incident involving Mexico defender Miguel Layun, who appeared to step on the Brazilian's ankle.

Former Aston Villa and current Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has since slammed Neymar for his unnecessary reaction to the incident.

"Neymar's reaction is pathetic. It's absolutely pathetic," the former Celtic boss said, as quoted by ITV.

"Honestly, it's a red card nowadays because they've spotted him standing on his foot. But I mean the pain threshold of Neymar is just incredibly low, I must admit. I wouldn't like to see him coming out of the doctor's surgery after getting a flu injection.

"He's a top-quality player, and he's a top-quality actor.

"He hasn't really hit it yet… part of that thinking is to do with this play-acting. He's been down dozens and dozens of times, he gets up again. He's completed four games, and he hasn't done too badly out of it."

Brazil's next opponents are Belgium, and the winner of that match will progress to the semi-finals of the World Cup.

In the last world cup, he was in tears, that defender almost killed him. Now, he is not taking NO for an answer. He is acting and rolling on the ground now and again. He has a big mouth too.

Everyone knows if he likes to play he play but if he decided to act on the day he will exaggerate.
