The Brazilian also talked about the national team amb the Ballon d'Or
Neymar, who is in his last days of vacation before returning to train with Barça, took the opportunity to visit a school in Sao Paulo that bears his name, and then made it clear what he wants to play this next season 2015-2016. The Brazilian striker said in an interview published on TV Globo that "I want to play Rio 2016 Olympics and Copa América. I have already communicated to the president". Ney said that "it would be a dream to win the Olympic Games. When I was a child I used to see medalists and Brazil still hasn't a football gold medal. It would be a dream for me and for Brazilians".
Neymar also talked about the Ballon d'Or: "Being among the TOP3 would be great. Being with Messi and Cristiano would already be a great honor". He added that "the 2 are above the rest. I have more admiration for Messi because is from another planet. He welcomed me and he is the player that gave me most assists in all my life. When I arrived people thought it would be difficult, but then everything was different. He treated me very well".
Neymar had time to discuss about the national team and defended his generation: "They are stars and I know what they are. You should give them more confidence, is an excellent generation and if they work well, they can grow a lot". Ney said it's "unfair" to say that he is the only great player and added that all of them are "very good" players.
