Neymar is not a team player according to talkSPORT's Jason Cundy, who wouldn't take the Brazilian over Chelsea star Mason Mount.

Cundy, himself a Blues fan, has taken aim at the PSG star, who helped Brazil get their World Cup off to the ideal start with a 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday night. Neymar is playing in his third tournament, but is yet to deliver glory for his country, and has been criticised for his playing style over the years.

The 29-year-old's quality has never been in doubt, ever since he burst onto the scene as a teenager. He's continued to pick up silverware at club level, first with Barcelona and now PSG, but Neymar has been accused of playing as an individual and Cundy wouldn't take him in a combined team.

He and Jamie O'Hara were discussing who from the Brazil team would make the England starting XI and Cundy claimed he would have Mount, who is by no means a global superstar, over the Brazilian because he is prepared to do his bit for the team. He said on TalkSport : Neymar doesn't get anywhere near a team I want to support because it's him, he's not a team player.
