Real Madrid winger, Rodrygo has come out to say that Neymar wants him to inherit the Brazil No. 10 jersey. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Neymar once called him aside to stay that to him, but it turned out to be joke, even if he didn’t know how to respond.
He added that the PSG forward was simply joking about retiring from international football, which wasn’t the case.
His words, “Neymar said to me ‘I’m already leaving the national team and the 10 is yours.”
“I didn’t even know what to say to him. I was embarrassed, I giggled and didn’t even know what to say properly. I told him that he must play some more, that I didn’t want [him] to [do so] now. And then he laughed.”
