Zico referred to his compatriot in an interview in the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, where he regretted that Neymar has “too many distractions”.

“I really like Ney and the way he plays is amazing. But it has to be more professional like Messi and Ronaldo, who live for football,” said Zico.
