Brazil’s Neymar has been named the most overrated soccer player in the world.
The British media outlet GiveMySport named the 10 most overrated players in the world on Thursday (June 14).
Neymar suffered the humiliation of being named the most overrated soccer player in the world.
‘The most controversial player to come up with this ranking is at the top of the list,’ said GiveMeSports.
Neymar’s inclusion seems baffling, but a closer look at his career reveals why.
After rising to fame at Santos, Neymar was touted as the next big thing to challenge the world’s best players like Messi and Ronaldo.
In Brazilian soccer circles, many thought Neymar would one day surpass Pele.
The expectations were enormous and the highest you could have for an up-and-comer,
but Neymar has been questioned many times throughout his career.
Neymar hasn’t won much.
Neymar has only won one UEFA Champions League title and has only lifted one trophy with the Brazilian national team,
the 2013 Confederations Cup.
He’s certainly not at Pele’s level. ‘
Neymar has been on a significant downward spiral since his steady performances at Barcelona and PSG.
He was highly touted at Santos but has been vastly overrated throughout his career.
Neymar made his professional debut for Santos in 2009 before moving to Barcelona in the 2013-14 season,
where he burst onto the European scene as a teammate of Messi.
In his four seasons at Barcelona,
Neymar won two Primera Liga titles and was a key part of the team that won the UEFA Champions League in 2014-15.
Neymar spent six seasons at PSG,
starting in 2017-18, where he was plagued by frequent injuries and fell far short of expectations.
While he won five French Ligue 1 titles with PSG, he didn’t have much success in the UEFA Champions League, except for reaching the final in 2019-20.
In his six seasons at PSG, Neymar has been plagued by a series of injuries and has been largely underwhelming, playing around 20 games in the league each season. 온라인카지노
Neymar moved to Al-Hilal in the Saudi Arabian Professional League after the end of last season.
Neymar continued to struggle with injuries after his move, making just three appearances for Al-Hilal.
Neymar tore his ACL in a South American qualifier for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup against Uruguay last November.
Neymar has reportedly been ruled out of this year’s Copa America as he focuses on rehabilitation.
Neymar has scored 79 goals in 128 A-match appearances for the Brazilian national team.
Neymar has surpassed Pele to become Brazil’s all-time leader in individual A-match goals, but his only trophy with the national team was winning the 2013 Confederations Cup.
Neymar has never won a Copa America title, with his best finish being runner-up at the 2021 tournament.
Meanwhile, GiveMeSports has named Morata (Atletico Madrid), João Felix (Barcelona), Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), Haberz (Arsenal), Mourinho (Chelsea), Pogba (Juventus),
Anthony (Manchester United), Henderson (Al Etihad), and Rashford (Manchester United) as the 10 most overrated players in the world.
