Scolari Criticises Martino's Use Of Neymar

Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has criticised Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino for playing Neymar on the right of their attack.
 
The Brazilian has been used on the left, his preferred position, from time to time, but has found himself on the right on numerous occasions this season.
 
However, the 2002 World Cup winning coach believes the 22-year-old has more to offer when given more space.
 
"For Neymar to play a little better, he has to have more space. It's quite difficult for Neymar to play on that side of the field, and very tough to tighten the mark," said Scolari
 
"So, he has to search a little more for an outlet somewhere on the field, to see if he can play what he knows how to play."
 
Meanwhile, Neymar has avoided any controversy when commenting on the matter, he believes he is still readjusting.
 
"I've always played a lot on the left. I'm going back to play on the right. I am readjusting myself", Neymar said.
