Neymar wants to play football in America and Brazil
Al Hilal star Neymar said that the Brazilian league and the American Major League Soccer (MLS) are two tournaments in which he still dreams of having the opportunity to play.
The superstar striker has just left the European football scene after moving to Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal from giants Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth £78m. Along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, he also left the old continent, which is considered the big home of world football.
In a recent interview, the top scorer in the history of the Brazilian team was asked if he would like to play in any other tournament. Neymar replied to GE Globo: “I can’t say whether I will move to play in another league or not. I don’t know, it depends a lot on the moment you are going through, your choice.” you, what you want.
In fact, I am still dreaming of having the opportunity to play in my native Brazil again. I want that, at some point, I’ll be back. I also want to compete in America to discover more about myself. Those are two tournaments that I really want.
I’m in Saudi Arabia and I didn’t know it before. As a professional player, I must always know how to adapt to every tournament I play. Moving also depends on many things, including how you live with your family, your suitable environment, and then you can decide when is best for you.”
Neymar has not yet made his debut for Al Hilal as he is still recovering from an ankle injury from last season. Fans will wait to see how he will perform in his new adventure in Saudi Arabia.
It is also important to know that Neymar, after training from the Santos training academy, is considered one of the best young talents in world football. He put on brilliant performances for several clubs in Brazil before arriving at Barca, where fans still remember him as a legend.
So his return to Brazilian clubs is a no-brainer. Neymar was asked if he would ever think of wearing the shirt of his boyhood club again, to which he replied: “To be honest, I have never stopped loving Santos. I have always been a son of Santos I am loyal to Santos I am Santos.
I want to come back here for the matches. Sometimes I go on vacation with my relatives but to be honest, I usually don’t have time to participate in tourist activities in this place. But next time, maybe I have to book a place in Santos.”
Neymar played in 139 matches for Santos during his time with the club. He scored 72 goals and assisted 37 more times in tournaments for the Brazilian side before moving to Barcelona in 2013.
