Scolari critical of Barca over Neymar

Brazil Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has hit out at Barcelona, blaming the club for Neymar’s recent health problems.

The young attacker had his tonsils removed earlier in the summer in order to be able to put on weight more easily, as the player had been suffering chronic infections which would make him lose weight while ill.

However, after the operation the 21-year-old was found to be suffering from anaemia and has lost seven kilos.

And the Selecao tactician has criticised the Blaugrana for their handling of the striker.

 “It’s unacceptable for Neymar to have anaemia,” he told a Press conference. “He was with Barcelona before the Confederations Cup and he was fine.

“At the moment it’s clear he’s not the same, he underwent surgery.

“It seems it was that lot [Barcelona], who know everything, who are always right. It’s obvious Neymar was going to lose weight after the surgery.”
