Dani Alves has backed Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar to mature and change his behaviour after criticism at the World Cup.
Alves feels that experience will lead to a change in Neymar, backing the superstar forward to mature and learn.
“In life, sometimes things happen that make you mature and make you realise that you have to improve as a professional,” he told reporters on Thursday.
“I’ve talked a lot with Neymar, I think he’s gained experience, and the little shots he’s received during the World Cup will make him even more mature, [lead to a] change of behaviour.”
Alves said Neymar, who has scored four goals in five games for PSG this season, needed to accept the criticism and grow as a person.
