KAKA GIVES NEYMAR ADVICE
March 31, 2017
Brazil football legend Kaka has dropped words of advice for his compatriot Neymar regarding his desire to be the world’s best player.
The MLS star says that Neymar should think about a change in his name if he wants the honour.
Neymar has revived his career in the last games after a goal-drought that saw him descend to levels unlike the previous seasons since his move to Camp Nou. He was spectacular in the 6-1 magic Barcelona pulled to restore their Champons League hopes after an earlier 4-0 mauling by French side PSG.
Neyamr, 25, netted two crucial late goals that turned the table around for the Catalan club. He scored his 14th striker in the game but he would be adjudged far from being the best player in the world.
Kaka thinks Neymar can be the best in the world but he advised, jokingly, that the player change his name to “Reymar.” Kaka explained that the rationale behind the advice was that all the successful football stars from Brazil have names that begin with “R.”
True, the names of most of the well-known Brazilian starts with ‘R’ like Barcelona legend Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and the rest.
Neymar is close to getting 100 goals in all competitions for Barca since his move to Spain from Santos in 2013. He has played 175 games and he is a crucial part of the attacking arm dubbed “MSN.” He is set to remain with the club, based on his current deal, for at least four more years.
Kaka on the other hand, picked up an injury as the MLS started. He has been decent for Florida-based outfit Orlando City. The 34-year old, who has scored 18 times in 52 games in his two years in America, is expected to return to the team when he regains full fitness.
