Neymar shared his conviction that Vinicius will be crowned the best player in the world by FIFA this season. “As for Vini, obviously the Ballon d'Or is his. I'm in the crowd. I sent a message before the game, after the game. He's a boy I love with passion. A great friend that football gave me. He will certainly be crowned with the Ballon d'Or. He's incredible, carrying our country's flag around the world. We're very happy and rooting for him”, declared Neymar.

Recovery

Neymar also clarified rumors about a possible return to Santos in 2025. He said that, despite the desire of Marcelo Teixeira, the club's president, to have him back at Vila Belmiro, he plans to honor his commitment to Al Hilal, in Saudi Arabia. “The chance of returning to Santos next year does not exist). Everything that has been said is absolutely false. There is no plan. I still have a year left on my contract with Al Hilal.

I hope I can have a great season. I missed out on that last one. Let's live little by little. There's a lot of time ahead. Obviously Santos is the team of my heart, one day I want to return, yes, but I don't have anything planned in my head”, explained Neymar.

They have the team for that, very high-quality players. We're in the crowd. I hope I hope Dorival does a great job with everyone. I'll be cheering him on,” he said.
