Neymar verbally tackled by Brazilian soccer legend

Neymar is definitely one of Brazil's and Barcelona's best players.

At only 24 years old, the Brazilian star already has a long record and great statistics, particularly with the Seleçao (70 games, 46 goals). Despite his outstanding performances, Neymar disappoints Zico, the former top player of the Seleção in the 80s.

In an interview with the press Jovem Pan Brazilian, the "White Pele" was allowed to send a small challenge to Neymar, who, in his opinion, is very far from the level of the two best players in the world, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. And that is mainly due to his lack of professionalism:

"Neymar should follow the example of Messi, who has matured over the years. He has to copy the moves of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by watching carefully what they do. They work all year, even during the holidays and you can never find them in any parties. They respect their clubs and their contracts. Neymar is not exactly evolving the way he should."

Well, you gotta admit Zico is not entirely wrong. But the young Brazilian has reached an exceptional level in the last years despite his weakness for parties. So, will Neymar's career be like Ronni's?
