After Brazil’s defeat in the Copa América final against Argentina, guilty were immediately found in the country that hosted the continental contest. Tite’s team failed to retain the title and was deprived of celebrating in the mythical Maracana, which was again invaded by a River Plate team as had happened in the 1950 World Cup final. For being a soccer leader and not having shown his best level, criticism rained down on Neymar. A Brazilian world champion pointed him out as responsible.
“Neymar is overrated. It is not worth all that money that PSG paid because it never won the Ballon d’Or “, attacked Luís Antônio Corrêa da Costa, better known as Müller, in dialogue with the Italian media All Market. The former striker who was crowned in the 1994 World Cup in the United States was not satisfied with what was offered by the Paris Saint Germain star and contributed his sharp opinion about him. It should be remembered that the French paid € 222 million in 2017 to keep their services.
Müller, who was youth world champion with Brazil in the Soviet Union in 1985, won the silver medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games and played three World Cups (he had more significance in Mexico 86 and Italy 90 but lifted the trophy in the 94 with just one game played), it was tough against ney: “The big ones can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Cristiano and Messi are because they have shown it on the field. Neymar is more valued off the pitch than on ”.
The former striker who received his nickname for his resemblance to the German gunner Gerd Müller, also chose a compatriot footballer in his position on the field with whom he lived on a plane: “Ronaldo was just starting out, he was a kid in ’94, so if I have to choose I say that Careca was the most complete center forward in Brazil. Very strong, a real crack “. The other alternatives were Bebeto and Romário, who in recent days thought that the Brazilian Confederation had to take a turn in driving and hire the Spanish Josep Guardiola as coach.
The darts in Brazilian territory after the Argentine conquest continue to be thrown from one side to the other. And Müller, a word authorized by his scrolls with the national team and San Pablo (he converted the goal that gave him the Intercontinental Cup in the 93rd final against Milan), did not miss the opportunity to offer his verdict on Neymar.
