Brazilian Football Confederation officials are awaiting the decision of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar da Silva after his big disappointment with his exit from the Qatar 2022 World Cup quarter-finals.
Neymar didn’t seal his fate as he said after losing to Croatia on penalties that he wouldn’t announce anything in order to avoid any emotional decision.
In this regard, the French newspaper L’Equipe reported that the Brazilian Football Association is treating the psychological state of Neymar in the same way as Lionel Messi with the Argentina national team.
The French newspaper stated: “The Brazilian Federation does not intend to impose anything on Neymar, but rather leaves him to digest his disappointment and pays more attention to the matter of choosing a new coach who will replace coach Tita.”
