Celebrity News: Both said in 2008 that their favorite team was Real Madrid
One of the ‘traitors’ in the recent history of Barça has confessed to be an admirer of the white team almost ten years ago, just like Coutinho.
Real Madrid is the best club in the world … and so do Neymar and Coutinho. The Brazilians, so linked for different reasons lately with FC Barcelona, were confessed in 2008 in an interview for the Marca newspaper as admirers of Real Madrid, whom both did not hesitate to catalog as the club of their dreams.
And is that if Neymar has hit one of the biggest ‘stabbings’ of history to Barca perhaps it is because deep down has a Real Madrid heart. Thus, in 2008, when he was called up with Brazil’s under 16 national team to play a series of tournaments, he granted a joint interview with Coutinho to the Marca newspaper. Neymar had no hesitation in affirming the question “What is the club of your dreams?” That was Real Madrid. The outcome is well known, and after playing a few years in Barcelona as soon as the Brazilian has had the opportunity has left the Barsa ‘with his ass to the air’ by the millionaire offer of PSG.
Coutinho, another Real Madrid Fan
The one who did not have many doubts about which was the best club was Coutinho. The Brazilian also answered the question with the same scoring and even went a little further. “Real Madrid is the best team in the world,” he said bluntly. Today, the Liverpool player is in the orbit of Barça to be one of his reinforcements in these last hours of the market of signings, but surely in Team Barça will not see him with the same eyes after this.
Robinho was a referent
On the other hand, both Neymar and Coutinho also agreed in 2008 to talk about the same referent that both had in common. That was none other than Robinho, who was a Real Madrid player whom both had in great consideration. “At first I played the futsal and then I went to the Portuguesa Santista, before returning to Santos. I watch Robinho a lot on TV and try to imitate him in everything, especially in the dribbles. Also, Spanish football I love. Here is played very nice, fast and with great quality, “said Neymar in that interview.
