Former Brazil midfielder and boss Dunga has addressed the current Neymar controversy by saying the player should follow his heart in choosing between FC Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain.
PSG signed Neymar in a world-record €222 million deal back in 2017, but recent reports suggest the Samba forward wants to return to Camp Nou.
The 27-year old has been managed by Dunga in the national team, and has suggested his compatriot that Neymar needs to put wellness before wallet.
The 1994 World Cup winner knows Neymar better than most in football, having handed him the Brazil captaincy in 2014, and thinks a comfortable environment should be his first priority.
“It’s important that he chooses where he’s going to be happy, where he will enjoy playing,” Dunga said.
“People don’t understand that the Brazilian player is different from the European one.”
“We like to play, to have fun, otherwise we get tense, sad… I hope that next season he can give us a lot of joy and demonstrate his full potential. It’s up to him.”
“He has many qualities, technical quality. He does everything a player needs to do and has matured a lot. He wins fouls now and he likes more to score, and not only to dribble.”
“I think he’s in a good moment.”
