Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has picked his five-a-side dream team and it is filled with attacking superstars. The Brazilian picked a well-stacked team full-off footballing galacticos that included the likes of Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba but the Brazilian forgot to select a goalkeeper or even a defender for his team. Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard also made the cut as the forward insisted on an attack favoured team. The final spot was filled by Neymar’s former Barcelona team-mate Luis Suarez, leaving Pogba as the most defensive player in his side. No Intention of Leaving PSG Any Time Soon, Says Neymar.
Neymar selected his five-a-side dream team while chatting with Red Bull which included some footballing heavyweights. He was asked to pick a team with a stipulation that no Brazilian players can be selected. The 27-year-old favoured an attack-heavy side as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard made the cut to take their place in Neymar’s top 5. The PSG forward was also asked to create a team from retired players with the same stipulation. And again by giving little regards to defence Neymar selected four former premier league legends in Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Thiery Henry, David Beckham. Barcelona playmaker Xavi completed the team as once again a defender and a goalkeeper went missing.

While in discussion with Red Bull, the attacker also opened up about a difficult 2019 and his plans to compete for trophies in 2020. '2019 was a very difficult year for me in every way - professionally and personally. It was a year of learning, of twists and turns, and bettering oneself' the Brazilian said.
