The topic regarding Neymar’s weight remains an ongoing topic of discussion with Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil. The 29-year-old has tried to downplay the matter with posts on Instagram. However, that isn’t stopping the media from asking questions.
During Brazilian manager Tite’s press conference, the national team’s physical trainer Fábio Mahseredjian had to answer a question regarding the physique of Neymar.
“Neymar did a pre-season at PSG and only played 63 or 64 minutes, I think. It is not enough to have the best performance. As for his weight, we have seen the photo he posted; he is not overweight,” Mahseredjian said.
“We have to give time to time. Sports training is not an anti-inflammatory, which you know is a painkiller. It takes time for you to have the physiological effects acquired during training.”
Brazil will face Argentina in a rematch of the Copa America final and puts Lionel Messi versus his PSG teammate Neymar.
