Brazil coach worried about Neymar's problems

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Brazil coach Mano Menezes says there is reason to worry about the recent problems of young striker Neymar.

Neymar was fined and issued a public apology on Thursday after cursing and offending his teammates and his Santos coach after not being allowed to take a penalty kick in a Brazilian league match a day earlier.

Menezes has told Globo TV that his first reaction to what happened is of "preoccupation."

The coach says it isn't the first time Neymar has been behaving badly on the field and that he needs to start changing his attitude.

The 18-year-old Neymar played his first match for Brazil last month, scoring in a 2-0 win in a friendly against the United States in New Jersey.
