Neymar's Dad: I Wanted My Son To Stay At Barcelona
Brazil superstar Neymar's father has admitted he wanted his son to snub Paris Saint-Germain and stay at FC Barcelona.
Neymar became the world's most expensive player ever when he joined the French giants in August, but his father, Neymar Senior, has revealed he wanted his son to stay at the Camp Nou.
"I was the one who hesitated until the last moment," he told Telefoot.
"I told him that the best choice was to stay but he wanted to take a risk.
"It was difficult, but Neymar wanted this challenge and we supported him.
"We were all proud when he was presented at PSG. To see Neymar projected on to the Eiffel Tower was incredible. He loves everything here."
The 25-year-old has scored eight goals and assisted seven strikes in eight games for PSG so far this season.
