Taffarel:" Neto's got options of going to the World Cup"

Claudio Taffarel, Brazil national team goalkeeper’s coach has been watching Neto for three days, as he is one of the footballers that Brazil’s national manager has got in mind for the  2018 Russia World Cup.

Taffarel spoke to VCFplay before coming back home where he admits that Neto has got options of going to the World Cup. That’s why I’m here, the manager told me to come over to check how Neto was doing. We’ve watched him on TV but it’s not the same than watching him live”.

After watching him closely on Friday and Saturday training sessions where he  had a chat with Otxotorena, we came down to watch the game against FC Barcelona. He hailed Neto’s“I think that he's an experienced goalkeeper, he's very technical. He has a lot of technique and he’s very quick. The other thing is the feeling of security that he gives to the defence, this is a really great attribute that a goalkeeper has to have.“

Valencia CF goalkeeper was runner-up with Brazil Olympic side in London 2012, from there he was called up by Brazil senior side to play a few friendly games; he participated in the 2015 Copa America.  Neto moved from Fiorentina to Juventus and after not having continuity he stopped going on Brazil duty but his name has always been on the cards.

Neto is working really well and is really happy at Valencia CF.  Neto has played 12 LaLiga fixtures under Marcelino’s orders where he has shown his great goalkeeping level
