Rafinha about Neymar: As a player, I don’t like him that much no. I don’t think he is that good (laughs). No, he stands out from the rest […] He is always smiling, always happy, always joking. He is a great guy, a very close friend and I admire him because he helps you when it’s a difficult time for you and he always shares his joy.
“To me, my father is an example. Since I was little he was the person who passed all his values onto me and my brother. We have to thank him for that. Being a world champion, he has always been a great example for us. He has always advised us to have fun when playing football and enjoy doing what we like best.”
