After constant crowd speculation of the 21-year-old leaving to Europe for Barcelona, Neymar made it known that he will be dazzling Santos fans at least until his contract is up after the 2014 Cup.
Neymar’s father revealed the following:
“He can choose some club in Europe, but we want him to see out his contract and if he happens to leave before that, it won’t be our choice. It will be Santos.”
And honestly, that doesn’t seem likely to happen as Santos and fans seem to be completely satisfied with their young goal scorer.
In the Brazil-Chile friendly, Neymar scored the tying goal in the newly renovated Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte. The game was a disappointment to most Brazilians, but Neymar continues to look on the bright side, defending the crowd and his country.
“One day you’re booed, the next you’re praised, football’s like that.”
