Neymar’s confession to Pique about Ronaldo
In the four years Brazilian superstar, Neymar, spent at Barcelona, Gerard Pique was among the players he grew extremely close to.
Both players linked up together in a recent interview for the Players’ Tribune and shared some interesting World Cup memories.
One moment Neymar recalled was the 2002 World Cup where Brazilian legend, Ronaldo, helped them to their fifth trophy.
His talents were at it’s peak as he also claimed the Golden Boot with his eight goals.
But apart his skills which entertained the fans, the attacker would forever be remembered for his bizzare hairstyle.
In a chat with Pique, Neymar confessed he also went down to the barber’s shop to get that same haircut.
When Pique asked Neymar about THAT haircut.
“Yeah…. Hahaha! The haircut of Ronaldo was good. I had it,” Neymar began.
“You had that haircut?!” Pique laughed.
“Yeah.” Neymar replied.
Oh, man, I would love to see that. Do you have a photo?!
No, I don’t have a photo. I’ll search. I’ll search for it. My mom has one for sure. But I had Ronaldo’s haircut.
All the kids there in Brazil probably had that haircut, no?
All of us, we were all looking like Ronaldo.
Brazil are the second favourites to win the World Cup in Russia with reigning champions Germany backed to regain their crown.
