Brazil boss Tite wants Neymar to play as a genuine number 10. Tite believes that any coach playing his star man on the wing is “a donkey”. 

The coach defended Neymar that he is better playing as a central midfielder than a wing. His style of play is getting difficult if he is not playing the role he is master of. 

The Brazil boss said, “He’s not a problem. He’s a solution.”

They say Neymar will make more mistakes playing there. But it’s his position that makes him make more mistakes because everything he does in creative terms there will be decisive.”

“If a coach plays Neymar on the wing, I will call him a donkey. It considerably restricts the creative capacity of a player with these qualities.

“Creativity is not constancy, it is contingency, it is circumstantial. He will make more mistakes, yes, because his creative ability is where he is required.”

Tite wants to see the Brazilian is best form during the Qatar World Cup at the end of this year and perhaps, expressing his concern about the uncertainties around his best player.

The 30-year-old forward established himself for both clubs. He made 74 goals for the Selecao, and He hit 28 goals through 30 games in his debut campaign at Paris Saint-Germain. Although he has slipped slowly backwards, his talent speaks for him every season. Neymar has scored 23, 19, 17 and 13 goals in the last four seasons, and will possibly set a 100 goals record in Ligue 1 in the coming season. However, Mbappe has become the star man. 

Following Goal, Neymar was one of the most expensive players in the transfer market in 2017. made a record-breaking €222 million (£200m/$262m) switch to PSG from Barcelona. He was reunited with his Barcelona ex-teammate Lionel Messi when Messi joined PSG last summer. 

Neymar moved to PSG to become the leading man for the Paris outfit. Perhaps it is time to impress Premier League as the wild rumour spreading that he is being linked with Chelsea.
