Barcelona winger Raphinha has slammed Brazil fans happy seeing Neymar suffering an ankle injury at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
As tens of millions across Brazil continue to mass protest against the election of president Lula, his supporters are happy seeing Neymar injured given his loyalty to Jair Bolsonaro.
Raphinha posted a story on his Instagram account in which he defended his teammate. With an initial photo of the two footballers and the word ‘Idol’, Raphinha went on to leave a forceful message about the figure of Neymar:
“Fans of Argentina treat Messi like a God.
“Portugal fans treat Cristiano Ronaldo like a king.
“The Brazilians are happy about Neymar’s injury. The biggest mistake of his career is being born Brazilian, this country does not deserve his talent and his football.”
