About Neymar Jr.

Who is Neymar Jr.?

Neymar Jr. is 28-years-old, born on 05 February 1992, and is a right-footed professional football player from Brazil. Born in Mogi das Cruzes, SP, Neymar Jr. has also played in Copa del Rey for Barcelona and in Série A for Santos.

Neymar has emerged as the great Brazilian hope of the modern era, utilising his fantastic dribbling ability and close control alongside his marketable image to become one of the most bankable modern football stars. After breaking into the Santos side as a teenager, winning the Copa Libertadores, he made a controversial move to Barcelona which led to a long legal case regarding the third party ownership of his contract. But he proved an instant success, scoring in the final as Barca won the Champions League in 2015. An unexpected world-record move to PSG arrived in 2017 and his career has stalled slightly as a result. A below-par 2018 World Cup, where he was heavily criticised for his simulation, has left Neymar at a crossroads in his career, and only Champions League success in Paris will justify his talent remaining in Ligue 1. He currently plays as a Attacking Midfielder (Left, Centre) in Ligue 1 for club PSG.
