The Brazilian celebrated Champions League with a white ribbon with the religious message

Neymar Jr. celebrated the Champions League with a white ribbon on his head with the message "100% Jesus", which hides a story behind. It is about an amulet of Neymar's since he was young.

His origin club, Santos, lived a deep finantial crisis along the arrival of the player in the squad. The situation was so bad that the guys of the low teams had no field to train, since the club had to cut the investments for the youth teams. 

When the alevin where his son played was about to disappear Neymar's father called the evangelist church he went to, who ended paying for a new field that granted the continuity of Santos youth teams. From then Neymar is eternally thankful to the church and he uses this ribbon as amulet, as told AS paper.
