“On the pitch it’s wonderful to play with him because he’s always there to put us in a clear goal situation.
“I admire him a lot, whether you like it or not, Neymar is an ace, a standard player so we do everything to make him feel good.”
Neymar has a son, Davi Lucca, born on 13 August 2011, with former girlfriend Carolina Dantas. He has a very close sibling relationship with his sister Rafaella Beckran, and cemented this platonic closeness by tattooing her face on his arm, while Beckran tattooed her brother’s eyes on her arm.
Neymar is a Christian, and follows the Pentecostal branch of the religion. Neymar has spoken about his faith saying: “Life only makes sense when our highest ideal is to serve Christ!” Additionally, he has sometimes worn a headband with the words “100% Jesus”. Neymar reportedly also tithes (10%) his income to his church and has named Kaká as his religious role model. Each year, Neymar organises a charity match with fellow Brazilian footballer Nenê in Nenê’s hometown of Jundiaí, with the purpose of raising food for needy families. In addition to his native Portuguese, Neymar also speaks Spanish.
