Pele Not Happy With Neymar

With the negative press that has surrounded Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar this year, Brazil legend Pele has insisted it is difficult to defend the former FC Barcelona attacker.

The 26-year-old was heavily criticised for his antics at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, during which he got a lot of flak for diving and trying to get his opponents in trouble.

Speaking on all that has happened with Neymar this year recently, Pele revealed that he has had words with his countryman.

"Sometimes I talk to his father, sometimes I see Neymar for adverts, it's hard to defend him for all the things he's doing in football, and I talked to him," he said, according to Sport.

"I told him he had football to spare, I've been to Europe twice with him recently, we have discussed it and I explained it to him.

"God gave you a gift for football. But what you did complicates everything."
