‘They lack character’: Casemiro takes aim at fans who celebrated Neymar’s World Cup injury as he admits it is difficult for Brazil to replace the ‘star of the team’
Casemiro has hit out at fans who have celebrated the injury of his brazil team-mate Neymar.
Neymar is undoubtedly Brazil’s biggest name and was tipped to be one of the stars of the World Cup.
But his tournament got off to a nightmare start when he was forced to leave the pitch in the opening game against Serbia with an apparent ankle sprain.

He is now in a race to be fit for the knockout stages and Casemiro has no time for those revelling in his misfortune.
‘It’s a shame that people wish others harm,’ he said. They lack character completely.
‘I think education comes from the cradle. Personally, I’m sad because Neymar doesn’t deserve this. He’s a person who helps others so much,’ he told reporters.
The Manchester United midfielder admitted that although there are players who could replace Neymar, none could match his level.
‘We have quality players, but if we compare him with Neymar, it is difficult to find someone of his level. The range of options is very wide, which is good for us, but we have to be realistic and accept that Neymar is the star of the team,’ he added.
