Neymar Should Be Benched: Peter Schmeichel On Brazil's 'Trouble Child'

Neymar Should Be Benched: Peter Schmeichel On Brazil's 'Trouble Child'
By Eoin Lyons Updated

RT analyst and former Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel believes that Brazil coach Tite should bench Neymar, stating that the PSG man needs a bit of 'thinking time' on the bench in order to be more effective when he does come on:

They still have their little problem child Neymar, who is the most expensive player in the world, an unbelievable amount of money was paid to him by PSG and he’s still trying to impress everyone with his skills, and still nothing is really happening for Neymar.

Schmeichel stated that in the current set-up the Brazil team always seek out Neymar with the ball, and then expect the forward to do something spectacular with it, but Schmeichel argued that this approach has not worked thus far:

They do find Neymar - that bit is ok. But he won’t do something. It’s not happening for him. And I think, either he needs a little break - he might not even be completely fit, because he’s always injured going into this tournament but his current standard and his current level, it might not be a bad idea to give him a bit of a break.

The 54-year-old went onto say that should Neymar be left out of the starting eleven then it would give the former Barcelona star more time to reflect on his performance, and that upon introduction he might be more effective for Brazil.


Brazil will face Mexico next Monday in the knockout round of the tournament at 3pm in the Samara Arena.
