SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: NEYMAR JR | THE MOST OVERRATED FOOTBALL PLAYER IN WORLD SOCCER ?

NEYMAR JR | THE MOST OVERRATED FOOTBALL PLAYER IN WORLD SOCCER ?

When Brazilian Footballer Neymar was elected 3º rd in the last FIFA Golden Ball Award I was more than surprised. Frankly, I could not understand how the FC Barcelona forward was in the Top 5 & less at the level of such giants as Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo.

In my opinion, witnessing things up till this point, Neymar is the most overrated Footballer in World Soccer. Yes, he has talent, scores goals but little more than any other Top 20 World Footballer. Neymar has his head on everything else except on Football & this is not good.

FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona player is on the front pages for irregular transfers fees, tax invasion in Brazil, parties with "his boys" & "his girls" & multiple non-ending publicity commitments & events. Football seems to be a sideline issue

Lastest incident, throwing an object at Valencia CF player Barragan & telling team-mate Jordi Alba to "go f*ck yourself" for not passing him a ball. This unusual behaviour coincides with the drop of form & three straight losses by Barça, including a Champions League elimination. Which just to add, we witnessed a non-existent Neymar on the field.

The Brazilian is gaining quiet an image for himself. Spectacular diving to cheat the referees in calling fouls & penalties, arrogant behaviour & humiliation towards opponents & some undisciplined behaviour worrying the Club FC Barcelona as the player dances the night away around city Clubs. And yes, if the kid wants, gets on a private jet flys 12 hours, has a good time, flys back to Barcelona in 2-3 days. Normal stuff.

Clown

Neymar is dangerously at the crossroads. Not the first big time name that has come over to European Football & a big Club to end up smashing head-on at the bright lights. Time for serious reflection by the youngster & decide which is the road to take. Neymar has the potential to reach the top, but just, potential that at this moment. 

While marketing, social media, front pages of media & the satellites-elements that surround Neymar inflates his image, his Football etc, the extras (doggy characters) are confusing this player. Big part of the problem is his Father, Neymar Senior , who is badly managing his son, with the focus being on money, self interest & other "dark" issues that pop up on media frequently. The old man is "shady" its a well known rumour that hits nearly the truth, an issue that is delicate but serious for Junior.

I hope that young Neymar gets over this slump, that the Brazilian regains his head, elects the correct options & behaves according to his ambition, to be the best Football player. Football will appreciate it, Brazil will desire it, fans will be overjoyed, his Club will be delighted & Neymar will be back on course. 

Difficult moments, I wish Neymar luck.
