Neymar needs to show he’s in good shape. The Brazilian playmaker of PSG posted four photos on his Instagram account this Saturday. Four pictures of him all smiles and above all shirtless (or almost), with his abs highlighted.

It’s hard not to see it as a new response to the recent criticisms made against him about his physical condition. His tractors had not missed the opportunity to run into him over the summer, after a photo appeared that did not show him to his advantage. The cliché seemed to show a slight overweight, hardly compatible with the requirements of the highest level.

These criticisms continued into early September. Many Brazilian fans judged No.10 to be far from peak form in Brazil’s 1-0 win over Chile on Thursday in the South American qualifying. © ricans of the 2022 World Cup.

After this meeting, Neymar had just given a first answer about his weight. After explaining that he did not care about the quality of the Seleçà £ o play, the star added in a comment on Instagram: “PS: the jersey was in size L, I’m sorry. I am at my normal weight. At the next game I ask for size M “.

After all this communication, his next performance will be very scrutinized. Especially since Brazil faces Argentina (Sunday 9:00 p.m. French time).
