Willian says Brazil does not rely on Neymar – Is it really the case?
In a recent interview the Chelsea star Willian said that the problem with Brazilian team is not lack of quality players. And Neymar is not the only super star they have. He further said that Brazil does not rely on Neymar. According to him Neymar is a great player and a key player of Brazil side but one cannot say that Brazil is totally dependent on Neymar. Regarding the poor performances of Brazil recently, he said that even Ronaldo and Messi sometimes struggle while playing for the national side. And although Brazil had many quality players they were just having a bad patch and will bounce back. He accepted that Copa America defeat at the hands of Chile was a big blow. But he insisted on the fans to get behind Dunga as he and team were doing their best to bounce back
Well, Willian is right with most of his statements. But is he really right when he says that Brazil has a lot of quality players and is not reliant on Neymar? The recent loss of Brazil in Copa America at the hands of Chile says otherwise. Neymar was suspended in that game and Brazil ended up losing on penalty shootout. If one looks at the current Brazil lineup it is clear that there is no player of Neymar’s class in their ranks.
Lets be honest, this is not the same Brazilian team as before. It is not that team having Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Cafu, or Ronaldinho. The only Brazilian super star making headlines these days in Neymar Jr. And we think that it wont be right to say that Brazil is not reliant on Neymar. The fact is Brazil relies on Neymar a lot when it comes to attack.
