Former Brazilian star Ronaldo Delima has faulted Neymar’s $264 million move to French side Paris Saint Germain in August.
The former AC Milan striker has described Neymar’s move away from Barcelona as a step backward in his (Neymar’s) career.
“He’s at PSG now, but sports-wise, this decision he’s taken is a step backward,” the 2002 World Player of the Year said in an interview with former international Zico’s youtube channel.
“He was at Barcelona and he left for PSG. I played at Barca, but I left for Inter Milan when the Italian league was a lot more competitive.”
Ronaldo, a two-time World Cup winner with Brazil (1994, 2002), spent the 1996-97 season with Barcelona after joining from PSV and then moved to Inter, returning to Spain in 2002 for Real Madrid for five seasons.
