Brazil and Paris Saint Germaine captain, Thiago Silva has complained about his colleague – Neymar’s attitude after Neymar allegedly insulted him for passing the ball to their opponents during Brazil’s game with Costa Rica.
Brazil’s 2-0 win over Costa Rica has been critised by many, even defender Thiago Silva.
Brazil won Costa Rica 2-0, thanks to two late goals from Phillippe Coutinho and Neymar in the 90th Minute.
Speaking on Neymar’s attitude, Silva said,
“He is like a little brother to me and I try to look out for him, but today I feel sad because he insulted me when I returned a ball to Costa Rica.”
“He had a point as they had given him a lot, but this one ball wasn’t going to earn us the victory.
“I was saddened by his attitude and I told him that afterwards.”
Discussing the forward’s post-match tears, Silva said that he could understand the outpouring of emotion.
“It’s normal that Neymar needs to let off steam,” the defender said.
“He carried a heavy weight.
“He’ll now be a lot more relaxed for the third game.”
