The Al-Hilal footballer was involved in controversy while fully recovering from his torn ligaments and meniscus.
The new Neymar scandal while he is injured
Neymar has no peace even when injured. The Brazilian star suffered a torn ligament and meniscus in his left knee in the match that Verdeamarela lost against Uruguay in the South American Qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup and will not return to the field until next year, a great disappointment for Al-Hilal, a club that just signed him for 100 million euros and offered him a stratospheric contract with countless benefits.
The former Santos, Barcelona and PSG player had been receiving endless criticism for his poor performance both in Saudi Arabia and in his country’s national team, but now it will take a long time for the São Paulo player to silence that criticism. In fact, there are those who fear that he will not reach 100% for the 2024 Copa América in the United States. Now, amid concern about his injury, Neymar was once again in the eye of the storm due to strong accusations in Brazil.
In the last few hours, local media reported that Ney held a two-day party at his mansion in Rio de Janeiro, something that goes completely against the medical instructions of absolute rest in the first weeks after having surgery. Furthermore, one of the people who attended the celebration exclaimed: “Broken leg alone in the field, on the dance floor he dances like crazy”. These words buried the Brazilian star and he is once again the focus of criticism in his country.
The one who emerged from the Peixe was always called to be Messi’s successor, but the truth is that due to different circumstances such as those just mentioned, he was light years away. In fact, Lionel recently suffered a muscle injury at the age of 36, being a world champion and fully realized, but he still approached the recovery with professionalism to be available as soon as possible.
The president of Brazil criticized Neymar indirectly
Lula spoke out to praise Messi and left a message for the Al-Hilal player: “A man who is 36 years old. He was World Champion and this year he won the Ballon d’Or. He should be an inspiration for children who appear on television and then disappear. “How many years has it been since Brazil has had a true idol like him?”.
