Soccer: Neymar eyeing the United States
Neymar hopes to one day play in the United States more than he wants to return to his native Brazil.
The 30-year-old striker recently extended his contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025.
“I have some doubts about being able to play in Brazil again. I would love to play in the United States, that’s what I want. At least for one season, Neymar told the podcast Fenomenos in a video released Sunday evening. In Brazil… I don’t know. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don’t. »
The striker jokingly added that he wanted to play in the United States « because the season in MLS is short, so there are four months of vacation. That way, I could play for a few more years.
When asked if he considered retiring, Neymar replied that he was joking with his friends about putting his boots away at 32. “I will play until I am mentally exhausted. If I’m good in my head and in my body… my body will last a few more years, but the head has to be fine. But there is no age. »
Neymar also considers the Brazil national team to be « very distant from the Brazilian fans ». “I don’t know why and when it started, why it happened, but I see it in our games. People don’t talk about it, don’t know when we’re playing. It’s not good, the striker noted. It’s sad to live in a generation where playing for Brazil is not important. When I was a child, it was an event. »
