Neymar hopes to make history with Barcelona and Brazil in 2014
Brazil superstar Neymar wants to make history with Barcelona and Brazil in 2014 by winning several titles.
During a recent interview he gave to Spanish newspapers Mundo Deportivo the 21-year-old talked about the year ahead.
“I want to get more wins and win titles; the league, the cup, the Champions League and then the World Cup.
“I am playing to win and I hope to make history with Barcelona and the Brazilian national team in the World Cup.
“Atlético Madrid are playing well, Real Madrid also, but we can still grow and trust very much that we can be champions.”
The forward was on the bench versus Atlético last weekend but said he was fine with Tata Martino’s decision, as he had been struggling with a stomach bug.
“I received the decision with confidence, it was the opinion of the coach. He is the master and you obey by his rules. I now have to work to be available.”
Neymar also opened up about accusation that he dives and is theatrical in addition to discussing the Champions League tie against Manchester City coming up.
“It’s a big team with a lot of quality players who can make a difference during the games and we have to be very focused.
“I do not do theatre. When I suffer or get a strong kick I try to protect myself and look out for it so it doesn’t shock me. In any case, it does not make me nervous what they say.”
