Interesting Facts About Neymar

The 23-year-old Brazilian has taken world football by storm, and he has put himself up there with the likes of teammate Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. But is there more to the skilful winger than what he displays on the field?

The Fan Park crew gives you a few interesting details on Barcelona’s Brazilian star.

Becoming A Father

Neymar became a father to a boy named David Lucca at the young age of 19-years-old. But unlike most young dad’s, he won’t have to worry about money for sure! And yes, this may be the only thing he has beaten Lionel Messi at.

The Petition Signed By Fans      

For the 2010 World Cup where Neymar was still relatively unknown outside of his home nation, 14 000 Brazilian fans signed a petition to get him included in the national team. However, it didn’t work and he only got his chance under Mano Menezes in August, two months after the World Cup.

West Ham’s Bid

The London club was the first club to make an official bid for the youngster, with an offer of somewhere around £12 million. Imagine Neymar in a West Ham shirt!

He ‘Nearly’ Moved To Madrid

Neymar was almost signed by the Spanish Giants when he was just 14 years old, after spending time in Madrid and passing all of the relative tests. However, he stayed with Santos after the Brazilian club paid a large sum of money to keep him.

Neymar’s Overall Club Stats

Goals: 109

Assists: 63

Yellows: 56

Reds: 3

Minutes Played: 15 653’
