Pepe Costa

Leo Messi and Neymar have a lot in common, even their friends belong to the same family. On the one side Messi has the support of Pepe Costa and Neymar, his son, Álvaro Costa.

Pepe Costa and Messi

Since long time ago Leo Messi receives the support in Barça from Pepe Costa, responsible for the attention department of the first team player, who goes with him everywhere, even when he travels with the national team of Argentina or even they go on summer holidays with their families.

But the relationship between the Costas and Barça doesn't end here. But to start before Neymar came to Barça, Pepe Costa met one morning with Neymar's father and with the agents Marcos Malaquias and André Cury. Malaquias posted this picture on his Instagram account. 

Álvaro Costa and Neymar

Once the signing was done the Brazilian started another relationship, Pepe Costa's daughter and Neymar. Álvaro Costa is responsible for the Nike products of Barça players and he was 5 years living in Brazil when his father worked there. Language was one of the things that helped in the relationship between Neymar and him, they became best friends. Like Pepe Costa does with Messi, Álvaro also went on holidays with Neymar and the Toiss. These days the Brazilian is in Turkey to play a friendly with the 'canariha' and Álvaro travelled with the father of the player and his sister to watch him. They also went to the last international break in Singapur.
