Ahead of the Manchester City game, Barcelona’s Neymar makes reference to the ‘legend’ Michael Jordan
The former Santos star is expected to feature in the clash at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.
Ahead of the Champions League quarter-final, 22-year-old Neymar made reference to an icon of a different sport.
Just hours before the game, the Brazilian posted a photo to his Instagram account of his face hidden by a baseball cap embroidered with the initials ‘JRDN’ in a reference to Michael Jordan, ex-basketball player of the Chicago Bulls.
“#MichaelJordan #Legend” read the caption.
Tuesday’s game may result in Neymar’s return to the Catalans’ starting line-up. On Saturday he came off the bench to score the final goal in his team’s 6-0 rout of Rayo Vallecano.
