Neymar's Dad: Messi Is Barca's Superstar, My Son Had To Leave

Neymar's Dad: Lionel Messi Is FC Barcelona's Superstar, My Son Had To Leave

By Kurt Buckerfield - Aug 08, 2017 06:45 PM @KurtLaduma

Neymar's father, who also acts as the player's agent, has admitted that his son had to leave FC Barcelona because Lionel Messi will always be the Catalan club's main man.

Study Shows Messi Is The Best Player In La Liga History

Neymar himself recently rejected claims he is left the Blaugrana to be a leader at another team, but his father, Neymar Sr, seemed to hint that he no longer wanted to be in Messi's shadow.

"Imagine a place where you are the protagonist of a club, where you are the idol of that club and everyone wants to transform you into the star that you do not want to be," he told COPE.

"Messi is the star and will always be the star. Not only because of the love and respect that Neymar has for Leo, he is his idol.

"Imagine that everyone said that Neymar has to be Messi's substitute, he does not want to be his substitute. You have to leave Messi, he is the idol at Barcelona.

"Neymar has to make his own way and accept the challenge he has. I think my son has been a man, shown respect (to Messi) and now he has to go his own way. He could go to any club and be in the spotlight, not that he wants to be number one.

"He is taking a risk. Can PSG guarantee him the Ballon d'Or? No. And it is crazy that people believe that. It would be easier at Barca, with the help of that team."

Neymar: I Didn't Quit Barca To Be Main Man

Neymar scored 105 goals and assisted a further 80 strikes in 186 matches for Barca.

Do you think the Brazilian will lead PSG to great success? Let us know in the comments section below.

Now it's in 'black and White' that Neymar joined Barca thinking that he was gonna be the main man 1day...sorry that was gonna happen only over King Messi's dead body. I can't wait for the judgement day (Barca vs PSG).

He's been a good and a complete player both for Barcelona and Brazil no doubt about that as for how he will do at PSG I guess time will tell but I trust and believe in Neymar he will deliver
