Atletico Madrid legend Juanfran names ‘unbearable’ Neymar as most irritating opponent

The former Rojiblancos defender faced the Brazilian forward during his time at Barcelona and admits he was a nuisance to come up against

Neymar has been branded “unbearable” by Atletico Madrid legend Juanfran, with the former Rojiblancos defender picking out the Brazilian forward as his most irritating opponent.

The 36-year-old defender spent eight years with Atletico before departing in 2019 for Sao Paulo, with a memorable spell in the Spanish capital allowing him to line up against some of the very best in the business.

Neymar fell into that category, having completed a big-money move to Barcelona in 2013, and while the South American often caught the eye with moments of magic on the pitch, he also proved to be a nuisance for those he was facing.
