Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has big plans after his playing days are over with a career mooted in becoming a professional poker player.
The Brazilian is currently gunning down a Champions League title this season.
But with one eye on retirement, the 29-year-old has revealed all on where his life will take him when he hangs the boots up.
Speaking in an interview with CNEWS, via GFFN, he said: “It is true, it is true. [Poker] is one of the things that I like to do the most.
“I feel very comfortable and I think that after playing football, I will be able to play in tournaments, travel to play in the tournaments that I have always wanted to participate in and that I was not able to because of my schedule and my career.
“So when I will have finished my football career, this is one of the things that I will do, travel to play in these type of tournaments. I already said to (Andre) Akkari that we would travel together.”
