Barcelona forward Neymar has a strong desire to represent Brazil at the Olympics, holding in Rio De Janeiro later this year.
The 24-year-old will represent Brazil at the Copa America in June, with the La Liga coming in a couple of months. But Neymar will love to delay his return to his club for a chance to win gold in home soil at the Olympics.
“For me, to play once again at the Olympics would be a dream, a great honour to represent Brazil once again at the Games, especially as these will take place back home,” the 24-year-old, who won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics, told Goal.
“I’m very keen to be there, not only for the gold medal that Brazil misses, but for doing it in my country.
“It’s hard to send a message to the Brazilian people and promise something. The only thing that I can assure them of is that I’ll do my best to honour our shirt with all my strength, my football, so we can go as far as possible.”
