Brazil started their World Cup this year with a massive form. PSG star Neymar was also included in the squad but didn’t do much throughout the course of the match. Even though Chelsea were interested in Neymar, former Chelsea player Jason Cundy suggests they prefer Mason Mount over him.
Mason Mount has been a part of Southgate’s English squad and have more impact off the ball than on it. Hence he rarely makes the headlines. Still, the Chelsea star has been compared to Brazil and PSG star Neymar.
Ex-Chelsea player claims on Mount and Neymar
Jason Cundy while talking to talkSPORT(via ChelsTransfer) says:
“Neymar doesn’t get anywhere near a team I want to support because it’s him, he’s not a team player,”
“Neymar won’t do what Mount does. He won’t do the dirty work. He won’t do that. If you’re a team player you can’t get in the team. Can you imagine if Neymar was English in that [Gareth] Southgate squad? Can you imagine the disruption, what it would do, the effect it would have? He’s not part of the gang.”
Neymar has been a hot topic over the years and has received lots of criticism in the football world. Just yesterday’s world cup match he was injured but seems like he will be okay.
What Brazil boss Tite said about Neymar’s injury
