A famous Brazilian commentator is in turmoil after appearing to call Neymar an idiot following the draw conceded by the Seleçao in Colombia.
Neymar has been at the heart of a new controversy since Sunday. And this time against his will. After making a lot of talk about him because of his words with DAZN, the Parisian No.10 having suggested that the 2022 World Cup could be the last big challenge of his career, or his poor performance in Colombia, the Brazilian was indeed called an idiot at the end of the match against the Cafeteros.
While journalist Eric Faria, present at the match, explained that Neymar, unlike his teammates, had left the pitch at the final whistle, a «idiot » was heard on the air. For many, the word would have been uttered by Galvao Nueno, a well-known commentator in Brazil, present on the set. If Globo TV did not wish to react, social networks ignited to condemn the attitude of the journalist.
But stupid? No ! He is the hero
And the Neymar clan did not hesitate to deliver the bottom of its thought. “A certain gentleman whom I had already mentioned in my stories the last time this time called my brother an idiot. Is it him or you? “, wrote Raffaella Santos, the sister of the former Barcelonan. And this after having already stepped up to the plate a little earlier to praise his brother’s resilience in the face of attacks of all kinds. “It’s a good thing that I don’t play football. Otherwise I would grab one by the hair and slam his mouth, she said. I don’t know, I would have a red, yellow, green, blue card, whatever… I don’t have the patience that my brother has. He has Job’s patience and I don’t. Congratulation. “
Equally recovered, Neymar Sr also went there with a message to defend his son against the criticism of which he is the target. “Masked, pampered, spurious and now an idiot.” We don’t mind the first three adjectives, silence has always been, perhaps, the best answer, he wrote on Instagram. Yesterday my son posed for a photo next to a child, pressed his face to his, even risking criticism for removing his mask. But what now? Where is the respect for the human being, for the eternal photo in an ephemeral life … the unique opportunity for a fan. Yeah, my son is masked and whatever else you want. But stupid? No ! He is the hero. A hero without lies, who faces his story head-on, without looking for cowardly shortcuts, without being a traitor. “ A message that did not leave the Parisian player insensitive, who indeed answered him ” I love you. “
