Is Neymar stupid for wanting to leave Barcelona?
When it comes to soccer, there is no loyalty. Players will always chase the money, and organizations move on from bad investments lightning quick. So why is everyone giving Neymar crap for doing what any competitor would do? Neymar moving to PSG is a great move for him. He can play out of the shadow of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. It's hard being the third wheel when two of the world's best attackers run with you, but now he can prove he really is the best in the world.
It appeared Messi and Suarez will be around for the long haul. Neymar leaving while he is still young gives him a chance to develop outside of a superstar bubble. With him as the main star at PSG, he will have plenty of chances to get numbers and establish himself in soccer as one of the best talents the game has ever seen.
Why ruin a perfect situation, Neymar? You are running with two of the best soccer players in the world, forming the most dangerous attacking trio in the sport, and you want to leave for money? At least fans know where your priorities lie—money over winning.
Sticking around Barcelona would have given Neymar invaluable lessons in what it takes to win championships. He would be learning even more from Messi and Suarez about the intricacies of the game. He has no one else at that level in Paris.
Neymar has a chance to be a part of something special in Barcelona. The team would no doubt win some La Liga Championships and would be contending for Champions League titles as well. If he wants to be the man, all he has to do is be patient and wait for Messi and Suarez to get older. Once their respective games slip, Neymar is now the best player on one of the best teams in the world.
Neymar is making a huge mistake leaving Barcelona.
