Neymar in tears before final Santos game v Flamengo

“It will be an honour to play with Messi, Xavi and Iniesta.” – Neymar after his final Santos match against Flamengo on Sunday night.

The match ended 0-0 but for Santos it was the end of an era as Neymar bid is farewell after earlier on Sunday announcing he would be joining Barcelona.

Flamengo were the better side on the day as Santos and Neymar struggled for fluency but the home support, who turned out in their droves, to the Estádio Nacional de Brasília, were able to pay their respects to the Brazilian forward.

With no goal (Neymar hasn’t scored for 725 minutes now, since mid-April) or any tricks to get excited about, we are left with the touching scene of the Santos forward crying as the club’s anthem was played pre-match.
