"Neymar and I have a similar point of view of life"
The official website of Neymar Jr has recorded an interview with Gerard Piqué. The center-back talks about his Brazilian fellow, explaining how he is. He also explains Neymar can certainly win Ballon d'Or and tries to explain the keys to the success of the trident:
How is Neymar?
"It's a very nice person, a friend of his friends. He adapted very well. He is very happy, cheerful, extrovert."
"He and I have a very similar view of life."
"I shared moments with him on a personal level and the relationship is very good."
"Everyone knows he dresses in a little bit extravagant way, especially on match days" [he jokes].
Neymar winning Ballon d'Or?
"Sure. I do not want to put more pressure. It is very difficult to win it, but I'm sure one day he will have the opportunity to raise it."
"He has Messi in his team and he knows that the Argentine is the best in the world, but for Neymar this is a privilege: struggling with the world's best player to beat him."
The keys of the trident
"Their friendship off the field."
"In Europe you can find many very good players, but with such relationship inside and outside the fild... it's unthinkable. No other cases."
"Their generosity, thinking about the team rather than themselves... this is what makes them really special."
