Crude words from Neymar to his fans and all the people in Brazil, in a recent and exclusive interview for DAZN, he admitted feeling tired both physically and mentally from soccer and that the World Cup Qatar 2022 will most likely be his last. .
Neymar today is one of the most important players that Brazil has to play in the World Cup, he is probably the most recognized player in the ‘Seleçao’. The times where the Brazilian team had 5-6 famous names in the squad are over, the last time Brazil was full of famous names was at the 2010 World Cup with Lucio, Julio Cesar, Kaká, Robinho, Dani Alves and Julio Baptista.
Ronaldinho was another big player like Neymar who retired early from the World Cups, the last time Ronaldinho played for Brazil was in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he was only 26 years old. Many Brazilian players tend to retire from the ‘Seleçao’ before the age of 30.
Neymar Was Clear With His Words: My Last World Cup
The interview was exclusive to DAZN as part of a documentary called Neymar & The Line Of Kings. Among several questions Neymar answered, one was related to the Qatar World Cup 2022, and he replied: "I think it's my last World Cup."
Obviously the answer was a surprise, therefore the interviewer decided to ask Neymar why he said that about the World Cup since being such a young player he still has a lot to contribute to the Brazilian team, but Neymar was very specific and said: “ I see it as my last because I don't know if I have the strength of mind to deal with football any more. "
Neymar Jr was admitting in the interview that he believed he did not have the same strength as in previous years to play with the Brazilian squad, especially after the disappointing results of 2014 and 2018 where they could not win the World Cup. Finally, Neymar added that he was ready to give all his talent in Qatar 2022:
"So I'll do everything to turn up well, do everything to win with my country, to realise my greatest dream since I was little. And I hope I can do it."
