It has been revealed that Xavi has told former Barcelona teammate Neymar to curb his showboating.
The former Spanish international can understand the anger of Athletic Bilbao’s players after Neymar’s Copa del Rey final antics.
“He needs to seriously think about how he should act. Maybe that sort of thing is accepted in Brazil, but it’s a thorny issue here [in Spain],” said Xavi.
“He should reflect about it because he’s an extraordinary, hard-working and humble lad, but he has that Brazilian attitude, according to which such things are part of the show, while here they’re seen as a lack of respect.”
