Talking to the Press ahead of tonight’s game of Brazil against Paraguay, Neymar was asked several questions that had nothing to do with the World Cup qualifier itself, and everything to do with his life at Barcelona and his collaboration with Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez.
Messi has been helping me a lot all these years, especially at the beginning when I had a hard time. A guy who has I don’t know how many Ballons d’Or came to me and said, ‘calm down, play your own game.’ I’m really happy for him when he makes a goal, or gives an assist
Neymar said, going on to call Uruguayan teammate Luis Suárez “the best number 9 in the world right now”.
As for himself, he made it very clear how he feels this season has been going up to now, brimming with confidence, especially wearing Brazil’s training t-shirt, a few days after their historic 1-4 triumph at Centenario, in Montevideo, against Uruguay.
This is the best moment of my career, not in numbers, but in football
the Barcelona star said, a line that has been perceived by the Brazilian Press as an implication that he has no real intention to leave Barcelona, despite Manchester United being allegedly willing to pay as much as needed to lure him to Old Trafford.
