It would be an understatement to say that the Blaugrana management, led by president Joan Laporta, did not approve of the Brazilian striker’s position. Even the men in the locker room, who were happy for his return, did not appreciate his small game. But two months later, Lionel Messi found a way to get revenge.
Brazilian players, including Neymar, have decided to boycott the Copa America, which begins in eight days. The reason? The competition was supposed to be held in Argentina and Colombia, but both countries chose not to participate, given the spread of the CoVID-19 in their country. Brazil agreed to host the tournament… despite the fact that the health situation at home was even worse!
The players, but also the staff, don’t want to take any chances. As we said, they are willing to boycott the event. But they would like other participants to support them so they don’t risk sanctions from Conmebol. But at the moment, no one has decided to follow suit. And Lionel Messi can not only make Neymar pay for the machinations in which Barça involved him during his contract extension with PSG, but also get rid of his main rival in the race for the first title with Argentina.
