Barca boss ‘would love to coach Neymar’

Barcelona coach Quique Setien admits that coaching Neymar would be a dream. The Brazilian is consistently linked with a return to the Camp Nou.

Neymar joined PSG in a world record €222m deal in the summer of 2017 but came close to returning to Barcelona last summer.

A deal could not be agreed and in light of financial difficulties created by coronavirus, it is unlikely the move will happen this summer either.

Setien told BeIn Sport, “I’d love to be able to coach him someday as he is a top-class player. To be honest, I’ve fulfilled a dream in coaching (Lionel) Messi, but I’d be absolutely delighted if Neymar joined us.”

Neymar’s agent Wagner Ribeiro said last week that a deal for his client to leave Paris this summer is very unlikely now. Neymar’s contract expires in 2022.
