Brazil boss: Neymar should move to PL

Brazil coach Mano Menezes believes rising teenage star Neymar would benefit from playing in the Premier League.

The 19-year-old stole the show when he netted both goals in Brazil’s 2-0 friendly win against Scotland.

Neymar, who currently plays for Santos, has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent months and his national coach reckons moving to England would help his fledgling career.

Menezes said: "I think that could only be good for Neymar as it would be confirmation of his development.

"English football would make him stronger and help to escape strong marking. I don’t see any problem.

"But Brazil fans will be deprived of watching a good player."
