On the eve of his 100th international Brazilian appearance, striker Neymar spoke on Wednesday about his commitment to both his country and his club, Paris-Saint Germain.
Brazil face Senegal on Thursday in a friendly in Singapore and the Brazilian federation presented Neymar with a special shirt on Wednesday with the number 100 on the back instead of his customary 10.
“I’m happy in the national team and with my club too,” said Neymar, who tried to escape Paris and return to Barcelona in the summer.
“Everyone knows what happened during the last transfer window, my initial desires, but today I’m happy and I feel comfortable in my club.”
“The season has started well for me. I’m going to defend my club tooth and nail,” said the 27-year-old who has struggled with foot injuries during his time in Paris. “I will give 100 per cent so that we can do great things.”
