PSG hire Neymar's Brazil physio as medical staff overhaul continues

The FC boys dive in to Neymar's attitude following Brazil's elimination from the World Cup and how he could potentially fit at Real Madrid.
After Brazil's elimination, Neymar's sub-par World Cup compels the FC crew to reassess whether he is still one of the top 3 players in the world.

Brazil national team physiotherapist Bruno Mazziotti, who worked to get Neymar fit in time for the start of the World Cup, has been hired to the same position by Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in February, ending his first season with PSG, and rehabilitated the injury under the care of Mazziotti so that he could be ready for the start of the competition in June.

World Cup exposed questions at heart of Brazil, South American sides

The FC boys dive in to Neymar's attitude following Brazil's elimination from the World Cup and how he could potentially fit at Real Madrid.

Argentina are trying to take some comfort from having lost to the World Cup champions. In truth, though, there is little comfort to be found. Both of Sunday's finalists produced by far their best attacking display against the Argentines, which says as much about the defects of Jorge Sampaoli's side as it does about the virtues of France and Croatia.

MOSCOW -- Brazil forward Neymar's playacting makes people laugh, former Netherlands forward Marco van Basten said on Friday.

Speaking in his role as FIFA's chief officer for development, Van Basten said the Brazilian star needed to take a look at himself.

"It's not a good attitude in general. You have to try to do your best and be sporting and if you act too much, it is not going to help," he told reporters. "That's a point in which I think he should personally understand his situation."

Brazil legend Ronaldo 'expected more' from Neymar at World Cup

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo comments on Neymar's theatrics and Tite's tough task of balancing whether Gabriel Jesus or Roberto Firmino start.
The FC boys dive in to Neymar's attitude following Brazil's elimination from the World Cup and how he could potentially fit at Real Madrid.

Legendary Brazil striker Ronaldo said he expected more from Neymar at this summer's World Cup and wondered if the Paris Saint-Germain star was held back by injury.

Brazil fell 2-1 to Belgium in the quarterfinal stage with Neymar, who came into the tournament still recovering from March 3 surgery on his foot, unable to make the difference for his side.

And Ronaldo, who led the Selecao to their most recent title in 2002, said he was disappointed by what he saw from Brazil's leading man.

Neymar in agony used by French firemen to plug first aid course

Neymar's World Cup misery may well be complete after firemen in France used a picture of him on the ground with Brazil in Russia to advertise first aid lessons.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar was unable to prevent the South Americans from crashing out at the hands of Belgium in the quarterfinals and he attracted more attention with his hairstyles and perceived diving than his on-pitch contributions.

The firemen likened Neymar writhing in agony to somebody in the recovery position and a spinning...
