Neymar: I once wanted to stop playing football

PSG striker Neymar has explained how he became a professional footballer and what he went through.

“I will never lose my passion for football, but there were times in my life when I wanted to stop playing. When I got to a point where I wondered why I kept playing if people didn’t like it. I would come home broken and remember all the things I had gone through to get to that level. My love of football became a tranquilliser, it brought me to my senses.


The move to Barcelona was a childhood dream come true. Winning the Champions League, moving to PSG – all those moments will always be special for me,” Neymar told Gaffer.
