Rio de Janeiro:

Star striker Neymar has criticised Sao Paulo's football federation FPF for scheduling matches during Brazil's carnival celebrations.

Neymar made the comments after scoring a late consolation goal in Santos' shock 1-3 defeat to Paulista in the Campeonato Paulista on Monday, reports Xinhua.

"It's disappointing to lose but even more so during the carnival," Neymar said. "This is a holiday, we shouldn't have to work."

Brazil's Carnival festivities began on Friday and officially conclude on Wednesday, when the country's public servants and most private sector companies return to work.
