Are you serious?
He's a winger, he doesn't have to be strong on the ball.
Since when do wingers not have to be strong on the ball? Sterling's biggest criticism in his first season is how utterly easy he gives the ball away due to his lack of ability to use his body. Every player on the field must be strong on the ball, regardless of position. Wingers can be weaker than most, but Neymar is far too weak to be effective in any of the major European leagues.
None of them are touted for strength on the ball.
They don't need to be touted for it. Just competent enough and able enough to hold their own (which they all excel at, despite their size). Neymar isn't remotely close to the average strength I see from the wingers at top European clubs.
