Alarms are being raised regarding the future of Neymar. The Paris Saint-Germain footballer is the protagonist of the latest documentary produced by DAZN in which he reviews his career and looks at the horizon of his sports career, which seems not have a very distant end.
The Brazilian made it clear that Qatar 2022 will be his last World Cup, to which he will arrive at the age of 30 -almost 31- and affirms that he will not see himself participating in another tournament like this when he is already 34. “I think 2022 will be my last World Cup,” he said. However, his justification has left football lovers very uneasy.
“I see it as the last one because I don’t know if I have the mental strength to deal with football more“He explained. A few words that have generated a sense of alarm around the player, that unlike today’s stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo (36 years old) or Ibrahimovic (40 years old), Neymar does not seem to want to extend his career much longer .
“I will do my best to get it right, I will do everything possible to win with my country, to make my biggest dream come true since I was little. And I hope to be able to do it “, settled the Brazilian.
Star since the age of 17
Neymar landed on the football scene at the young age of 17, breaking into the Santos and taking little to settle as its main figure. All this, also with a great media focus on him, with the best teams in Europe following in his footsteps and with the poster of heir to Messi and Cristiano on their shoulders.
If he played in Qatar and that was his last World Cup, Neymar would close his career with three tournaments behind him. He made his debut in Brazil in 2014, where he ended up with a fractured vertebra as a result of a knee from Zúñiga, and in Russia 2018 he came against the clock after several months injured by a foot injury.
