I think that it is unfair, but those in charge are those in charge. It is clear that he’s a player that’s targetted. I would have exploded before him, for sure. Neymar has a lot of patience.
I don’t think he’s being persecuted, but he is an important player for Brazil and for Barça and for that reason people do go after him.
He has a style of play that everyone would love to have, but not everyone can do it. I’m the first in that regard.
