No more rift between my son, Enrique, says Neymar’s father


neymerNEYMAR’S father has claimed his son and Luis Enrique have kissed and made up behind the scenes at Barcelona.

The Camp Nou coach branded Neymar’s reaction – gesturing angrily about being brought off – to being substituted in their 2-2 draw with Sevilla last Saturday as “nonsense”.

Any tensions between the two have clearly been kept under wraps as the Brazilian was chosen to start versus Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday and again in their 2-0 win over Valencia on Saturday, scoring in the former and playing the entire match in the latter.

Neymar’s father, who infamously pocketed €40 million from his son’s €86.2m move from Santos, says he has spoken to the 23-year-old and insists there is no lingering animosity between the pair.

“I have spoken to Neymar and understood the frustrations,” he told Cuatro.

“The two are at peace now. He is young and he is learning, he will take these moments and use them as lessons.”

Neymar is expected to be back in action tomorrow when PSG visit Camp Nou looking to turn around Barca’s 3-1 advantage in their Champions League quarter-final.
