Neymar News: Boxers, Break Ups & Brushing Lips

What Neymar does in his spare time is his business as well as ours.
On his off-pitch exploits, we have several points we’d like to address.
Not that we were actively looking, but we finally have a good explanation for those furiously flexed photos of Neymar that we discovered in September.
In a four year deal that’ll see the Santos FC forward make a few million whilst barely covered, Neymar is officially the face (and body) of Lupo. For reference, Lupo has been going gangbuster on the men’s underwear market for some time now and once their garments hit rock bottom, the only way they found was up.
In the words of our Mums, men are like bank accounts. Without a lot of money they don’t generate a lot of interest. Be honest, Kickettes: how many commas in Neymar’s modeling paycheque would it take for you to be interested (assuming you aren’t already)?

The latest in his apparently hectic love life? After only 2 months of allegedly going steady, Ney-to-the-mar and his actress/girlfriend, Daniela Carvalho, have called time on their relationship. Rumours of his nighttime frolicking with other females – compounded by the supposed harassment of Carvalho by the Brazilian media and the footballer’s own fans – was among the reasons given for the couple’s amicable parting of ways.
We’ve yet to dig up 100% verification that these two were even together in the first place, but as we see it, he’s just doing what comes natural for young ‘ballers: spending money like it’s tap water, gallivanting ‘till dawn with the lay-dies and expressing his angst through his ombre-coloured faux hawk.
Our search for factual sources was essentially over before it ever began.
And finally, Neymar taped a segment for Brazilian chat show, ‘Hebe Camargo’, the other day where he spoke about fame, fatherhood and his ‘vanity’. The programme’s host, Hebe herself, even managed to coax the lad into planting a wet one on her lips.
In most instances, we here at Kickette are happy to be the first to jump on the ‘are they/aren’t they’ bandwagon of endless discussion, speculation and analysing of body language from paparazzi photos of footballers and their gals, but not in this case. This time, we see through Hebe’s ploy. In fact, we wrote the rule book on how to get a job like this done. See page 239 of our Kickette Morals & Ethics Code of Conduct for illustrations.
And with that we say: get it gurrl.
(PS – if you live in Brazil, the show airs tonight, so make sure your girl Siri is prepped and ready to take notes for the rest of the globally-scattered Kickette Army!)
