Crucified Neymar appears on Brazilian magazine cover as martyr for divers
1 view • posted
Brazilian sports magazine Placar decided to depict a crucified Neymar on the cover of their latest issue. The image was inspired by a 1970s issue of Spanish magazine Don Balon, which depicted Johan Cruyff in almost exactly the same way.
The Placar cover reads "the Brazilian ace turns scapegoat in a sport where everyone plays dirty," in reference to the frequent criticism that he goes to ground too easily -- which, as Placar argues, everyone else does too (except for Liverpool players, according to Brendan Rodgers).
