Opinion: Coronavirus Tweets Capture the Difference Between Mbappé and Neymar

Separated by 17 minutes, these two tweets from Paris Saint-Germain superstars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. show just how different their personalities are.

Mbappé’s tweet came first and showed the Frenchman relaxing on a sofa with a KM-branded hat and hooded sweatshirt. I presume the photo was taken at his home in Paris and the caption simply read, “Another day ✔️”

The photo shows Mbappé’s laid-back manner off the pitch and his commitment to staying inside during the coronavirus pandemic.

Neymar’s tweet had a lot more…energy to it let’s say. The 28-year-old is currently in Brazil at his luxury Rio compound during the coronavirus pandemic and is pictured under an outside shower wearing bright red shorts and flexing his arms with his tongue out. His caption read, “One more day 💪🏽 keep strong and stay safe 🙏🏽”

Neymar is definitely the flashier of the two but the most important thing here is that both players are staying isolated to prevent contracting the coronavirus.

While the players have different personalities, there’s nothing wrong with either one. In fact, throughout history, rarely do you see a successful duo who share the same personality traits.

On the pitch, the differences between Mbappé and Neymar work really well together. The Brazilian’s tricks and flair for the spectacular open up possibilities for the Frenchman’s blistering pace and incredible physical advantage over most defenders.

Hopefully, football can resume in the coming months and fans can enjoy watching PSG’s two superstars on the pitch instead of “liking” and “re-tweeting” their social media posts.
