Why I Felt Shy Speaking To Messi At First – Neymar

Published

Neymar has revealed he was “embarrassed” to talk to Lionel Messi, when he first arrived at Barcelona from Santos in 2013.

The Brazilian says he felt like he was in a video game, any time he entered the dressing room and saw some of the players.

 

Neymar attended his Messi’s star-studded wedding in Rosario on Friday, a sign of the close bond he has developed with the club legend. But it was not always like that.

“I would walk into the dressing room and I would look to one side and see Messi and then I would look to the other side and I would see Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and Dani Alves,” Neymar told Brazilian TV show Caldeirao do Huck.

“I thought that I was inside a video game. One day I was playing with them on the games console and then the next day I was there next to them.

“The first month was very difficult and to begin with I was embarrassed to speak to Messi, as these guys were idols. They were idols to me, while I was the new arrival and still very young.”
