Neymar, Mourinho: two worlds in one world
Neymar and Mourinho have been the great protagonists of the first day without the League. The Brazilian has been presented before 56.000 followers at the Camp Nou as the brand new signing of the catalans. The luso has confirmed what was an open secret: Will he be the next Chelsea manager?.
At 18.37 of the hot Barcelona afternoon, climbed the last of the steps that connect the changing room tunnel to the pitch. 56.600 fans chanted his name with enthusiasm. He said it before the fans and repeated it in the very long press conference before the 334 accredited journalists from 15 countries. “I am not worried about being the leader of the team and I have never been worried about being the best player in the world.. The best is here and it is Messi. It is lucky and an honor to be able to play alongside him and help him continue to be so and win more Ballon d'Ors.". That said the player who has cost Barcelona a total of 57 millions of euros, 17 more than expected. "The price was increased because other clubs interfered and because their incorporation was brought forward a year", argued vice president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The player —"I don't think it's worth 57 millions"-, explained that when Santos informed him of the offers, one of them from Real Madrid, he chose with his heart. “They are two great clubs. I'm happy because they both wanted my football. My heart was in Barcelona and here I am. I made the decision with my father and my mother. But the last word is mine. It was a turning point. We have never been very motivated by money. My father has known how to guide me since I was little. I went to places where they paid me less. Happiness is above all. When asked if it was true that he had passed a medical check for Madrid, Neymar hesitated before saying "no".
And while that was happening in Barcelona, in London, Mourinho confirmed arrival at the only team of his loves along with Inter Milan. After leaving Real Madrid in fits and starts, now faces a tough ballot at Stanford Bridge. What will he do with Torres?, Terry y Lampard? will you keep them as a praetorian guard? will he throw them to the lions? We do not know, what we do know is that both Neymar and Mou will not leave anyone indifferent. Each in their own way, in your style, but with the same goal: succeed in the world.
