Brazilian superstar Neymar considered retiring from football after his big-money move from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain.
Neymar moved to PSG for £198m in 2017 and admitted then that there were people who didn’t like him at Barca and in an interview with AS, the player admitted that he thought of retiring after feeling the people didn’t appreciate the hard work he had put to reach the levels he was.
“Once I got to the point of wondering if I wanted to keep playing football, since people don’t like it. I went home one day with a hot head and then I began to remember everything I did to get here.”
“The love that I have for football calms me down and that brought me back to reality. I am a person who easily handles pressure, that is why I am the 10th of the Brazilian team, PSG and I am simply Neymar.
“I am very grateful to represent teams like PSG and Brazil. I know I have to give 100% when I play because that’s what everyone expects,” Neymar said.
Neymar has always been on the news due to his association with Barcelona with rumors always rife that he has always been open to returning to Camp Nou to play alongside Messi.
The player, considered one of the best of his generation, has 103 caps for his nation and constantly tasked with leading the side to success in major tournaments.
