Neymar sings song sharing its name with Nike boots and his tattoos for PSG initiation – seems relieved when it ends

Date Posted,August 4, 2017

Paris Saint-Germain will be banking on Neymar being more confident on the pitch than he is belting out a tune.

The world’s most expensive player was certainly not spared the obligatory initiation when he joined his new team-mates.

The Brazilian was unveiled officially by the club on Friday, with fans ecstatic to have landed the star from Barcelona.

But the £199m signing didn’t seem quite as impressed as he stood up in front of his fellow players to sing a song.

Team-mate Marco Verratti kindly filmed the moment on his phone his shared it with the world.

Neymar is a good sport, clapping along to himself but can’t wait for the task to end.

He chose to sing Ousadia e Alegria by the Brazilian artist Thiaguinho, a track which shares the name with a range of Nike boots he endorses.

The Neymar Ousadia Alegria Hypervenom II Phantom boots, designed by Brazilian street artist Bruno Big, aren’t inspired by the song but his tattoos which read Ousadia and Alegria, meaning daring and joy.

Neymar is set to be introduced to fans again today when PSG play their Ligue 1 season opener against Amiens.
