Jason Cundy claims he would ‘100 per cent’ take Mason Mount over Neymar as former Chelsea man says the Brazil forward is ‘not a team player’ and ‘won’t do the dirty work’ like the England midfielder’
Jason Cundy insists he would rather have Mason Mount in his team than Neymar as the Brazilian will not do the ‘dirty work’.
Neymar starred in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Serbia on Thursday but his participation in the remainder of the tournament is unclear after hobbling off with a sprained ankle.
Adding insult to injury, Cundy fired shots at the Paris Saint-Germain star and labelled him as ‘not a team player’.

Cundy hit out at Neymar insisting he would rather have Chelsea’s Mason Mount in his team
‘Neymar doesn’t get anywhere near a team I want to support because it’s him, he’s not a team player,’ Cundy told talkSPORT.
When quizzed on whether he’d rather have Mount in his team than the Brazilian star, Cundy replied: ‘Yes! 100%
‘I’ll tell you why? Neymar won’t do what Mount does. Neymar won’t do the dirty work. He won’t do that. If you’re a team player you can’t get in the team.

‘Can you imagine if Neymar was English in that Southgate squad? Can you imagine the disruption, what it would do, the effect it would have? He’s not part of the gang.’
The talkSPORT host then hinted his move from Barcelona to PSG in 2017 was fuelled by a need to escape Lionel Messi’s shadow.
He continued: ‘Look what he did, he left Barca because he couldn’t compete with Messi. He turned up at PSG, Mbappe turned up and he’s not even the best player at PSG.
‘It’s about him, it’s more than just him player.’
