Neymar Jr has reportedly hired an Ultimate Fighting Championship star to be his personal bodyguard following his move to Paris Saint Germain.
The Brazilian’s mega-money move to the French giants certainly caught the eye of everyone within football, with a fee reaching up to €222m.
Safe to say, a lot of Neymar fandom come from this and there is no doubt that the player is being swamped by fans every day.
Now, the forward has acted upon this and has hired UFC star Nordine Taleb to keep those crazy fans at bay and to be his personal bodyguard.
Neymar starred in PSG’s win over Guingamp at the weekend when the Brazilian setup Edinson Cavani and scored a goal himself.
Nordine Taleb’s last fight came back in May against Oliver Enkamp, a fight that Nordine unanimously won.
There is no doubt that Neymar can sleep easy while having Taleb in his bodyguarding entourage.

Pogba talks about expectation and transfer fees
Following Neymar’s mega-money transfer to PSG, Paul Pogba is no longer the worlds most expensive footballer.
The Frenchman moved to Manchester United last summer in a deal that was worth around £89million.
Now, he has been speaking about the expectation that was made of him when it came to his transfer and the questions of the price tag.
The midfielder explained that everyone was so fixated on his valuation and how much he cost over what really mattered, the football.
Pogba spoke out about how now all he is asked about is the football, the transfer fee has been forgotten which could also be applied to Neymar.
It seemed as though Pogba was explaining this due to Neymar’s situation but did not mention him directly.
