Brazil and Al-Hilal forward Neymar reveals tha ugliest footballer he has played with.

Brazil were held to another disappointing draw, this time in their opening match of the 2024 Copa America against Costa Rica and clips of distraught Neymar watching from the stands made the rounds on the internet. 

However, it was a video from an interview in which the former Barcelona star was asked to name the ugliest footballer he has ever played with that broke social media platforms after the game. 

What Neymar said 

Speaking with a Brazilian content creator, Neymar was quizzed about a number of football-related questions, one of which stood out. 

The Al-Hilal forward was comically asked to name the ugliest footballer he ever played with. Clearly amused by the question, the 33-year-old had a laugh, before naming his Brazilian teammate Vinicius Jr.

“The ugliest player I played with? F*ck, I’ve played soo many, man, it’s a good competition. F*ck, with all due respect... Vini Jr, he hurts man [laughs],” Neymar said, as translated by Ginga Bonito. “Look Vini I love you but bro. The good thing is that he’s funny so it makes up for it.”

Meanwhile, Vinicius continues in his struggle to truly transition into Brazil's next talisman, with Neymar in the twilight of his career and struggling with recurring injury problems. 

He has only scored three goals in 31 appearances for Brazil, the last coming a year ago in the 4-1 international friendly victory over South Korea. Of his previous 10 games for Brazil, the Selecao have only managed three wins, drawing four times, and losing three.
