Neymar, Yours Truly, People, May 27, 2024

Born on February 5, 1992, to Neymar da Silva Santos Sr. and Nadine da Silva in Mogi das Cruzes, So Paulo, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior was raised a Christian. His former footballer father gave him the name, and as Neymar’s abilities developed, he was appointed his son’s advisor. Neymar played street football and futsal for fun when he was little. Due to financial constraints in his family, Neymar could not attend college and had to concentrate solely on his football career while he was of schooling age. He just attended a local elementary school in Lupe Picasso. Neymar claimed that futsal significantly impacted him growing up and helped him improve his technique, cognitive process, and ability to move in confined places.

Neymar relocated to So Vicente with his family in 2003, when he started competing for the Portuguesa Santista youth team. They eventually relocated to Santos in 2003, where Neymar signed a contract. With the help of his lucrative youth career and more cash, the family was able to purchase their first home, a house close to Santos’ home stadium, Vila Belmiro. As Neymar’s income increased from 10,000 reais per month at age 15 to 125,000 reais per month at age 16, their quality of family life improved. He earned his first full-time professional contract at age 17, was promoted to the Santos first squad, and started securing his first sponsorships.

His trainer at one point was his father, Neymar Santos Senior, a former professional player. Nadine da Silva is the name of his mother. He had a fatal accident when he was four while his parents were visiting family. Despite surviving the collision, his father’s damaged hip bone rendered him unable to continue playing football. Neymar Sr. played amateur football for Brazil’s lowest level before the disaster. His father was injured in the accident and could not continue playing, so he was obliged to hunt for alternative sources of income, such as working as a salesman or a mechanic, to support the family despite difficulties.

After losing the semifinal game, Brazil suffered a humiliating exit from the ‘World Cup’.

During the 2017–18 season, Neymar debuted for the Paris Saint-Germain team and scored a goal against ‘Guingamp’ in that first game. Despite having a right foot injury, he finished the season with 28 goals in 30 games. The promising player’s 2018–19 season wasn’t spectacular because he was still healing from his injury. He suffered numerous defeats in the Cup de France finals against Rennes and the Champions League. In addition, Brazil’s national team lost to Belgium in the quarterfinals, ending their participation in the 2018 “World Cup.” He suffered an ankle injury during a friendly match against Qatar, which resulted in him being disqualified from the Copa America event in 2019.

He also received the “FIFA Puskas Award” that year for scoring the finest goal. For his performance at the 2013 FIFA Federations Cup, he was awarded the “Golden Ball.” He received the “La Liga Best World Player” honour following the 2014–15 campaign.

Throughout his career, he has also had trouble with injuries. With his 79th goal in his 125th game for Brazil, Neymar passed Pelé to take the lead as the team’s most scorer. Neymar and Marco Verratti were informed that they would not be in the team’s plans for the upcoming season when PSG started a squad overhaul after the 2022–23 season and did not renew the contracts of Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi. Luis Enrique then took over as the club’s new manager. Neymar’s prospective return to Barcelona was mentioned shortly after that. Barcelona’s hierarchy, though, never developed to the point where it could go into greater detail about specific economic options. He is PSG’s sixth-highest goalscorer and seventh-highest assist-giver all-time, demonstrating his prodigious scoring and playmaking skills.
