The hilarious moment Richarlison moved Fred because he sat in Neymar’s spot for the Brazil World Cup squad photo has gone viral.
Tite’s side are among the favourites to go all the way in Qatar and win their first World Cup in 20 years.
Neymar will once again be their most influential player, as he has been for almost a decade at this point.
It’s clear to see how well-respected he is by his international teammates. Among those are Richarlison, who wanted his friend to have the best seat in the house. Sadly for Fred, it was at his expense. Check out the video below.
Fred is sat chatting to Bruno Guimaraes, before Richarlison comes hurtling over.
Without saying a word, he grabs the Manchester United midfielder by the hand to remove him from his seat.
The Tottenham Hotspur man extends his arm to point to the opposite side of the bench. He then escorts Fred, with a confused expression on his face, further down the bench.
Fred’s new seat was in between Raphinha and Alex Telles, rather than next to captain Marquinhos like Neymar’s. Still not shabby company to keep.
Fans online have reacted to the clip, referring to Richarlison as Neymar’s personal muscle.
One person commented: “Why have they done my boy Fred dirty like that?”
Another said: “Richarlison is to Neymar what Rodrigo De Paul is to Lionel Messi.”
A third tweeted: “He really told Fred to know his role smh.”
While someone put: “This guy disturbs everybody I secretly love it.”
Brazil are in Group G alongside Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. They start their campaign against Serbia on November 24 before facing Switzerland on November 28. They then take on Cameroon in their final group game on December 2.
