Neymar da Silva Santos Junior is one of the most iconic players in football, a superstar for Barcelona FC and the greatest name in modern-day Brazilian sport.

His journey to the peak of world football has been extraordinary: from a childhood spent on the verge of poverty he was plucked from obscurity as an 11 year old by Santos FC, the club where Pelé made his name, and soon after making his first-team debut as a 17-year-old he rocketed to fame to become one of the brightest stars in Brazil. But Neymar Jr would not have become the player that he has without his father, Neymar Sr, who has been a steady and influential guide in his life and career. And only with an understanding of his father’s past, and of the challenges that the Neymar family have faced and overcome, is it possible to truly understand the making of this extraordinary footballer.
