The former AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf is of the opinion that the Santos striker Neymar should play in Europe one-day in order to be compared alongside the best in the world. Neymar is regarded as one of the best young talents in world football. He has achieved a lot with the Brazilian club Santos, which has raised his profile around the world. He has been able to command wages of around £ 1 million a month even with the Brazilian club Santos due to the presence of several sponsors. Hence, he is not with the need to move to Europe in order to earn money.

As result, he has been committed his future to Santos in the last few years. He has said that he will be willing to move to Europe only after the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The former AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf, who recently joined the Brazilian club Botafogo, has the experience of playing for several top clubs in Europe aside from AC Milan. He has said that Neymar is too young to be shouldering the responsibility of carrying a team like Brazil at the World Cup. Hence, he has urged Neymar to move to Europe in order to gain more experience of top-level football.

“He is very young, he does not have to have that responsibility in the squad. The Brazilian people need to take it. He has talent. We met two days ago (in the Brahma cabin, the Marquis de Sapucaí). I liked his energy. One day, I hope he makes an experience in Europe. There is no price to pay for that experience. Normally, he would adapt to playing there. But I’m enjoying watching him play in Brazil. I hope he has much success in life,” said Seedorf in a recent interview.
