A brand new Neymar.
It is perhaps the birthday present that the Brazilian intends to offer to his trainer Mauricio Pochettino who celebrated his 49th birthday this Tuesday.
Since his adductor injury on February 10 against Caen, the Parisian striker and playmaker has redoubled his efforts to quickly return to the competition with Barça's reception in sight next Wednesday, March 10.
And he would like that to be known.
For this, the crack of Santos package, this Wednesday, against Bordeaux regularly staged his return to the fore on social networks.
"He's fed up with controversies"
Treatments with his personal physiotherapist, Rafael Martini, mask on the nose in an oxygen chamber, balanced diet to keep the figure, everything goes.
“After his injury, Neymar paid attention to his diet, he started a sort of five-day diet based on vegetarian dishes, he increased the exercises, got a hyperbaric chamber at his home, says Isabela Pagliari. journalist from the Esporte Interativo channel.
He wants us to focus on his athletic performance, and not just anything extra-athletic.
He is fed up with controversies.
This is the meaning of the message sent this Tuesday morning by the 29-year-old Brazilian on his social network.
In this short video, he is moved and ironic about the fact that many sites have relayed a question-and-answer session with his subscribers that he hosted last Sunday on Instagram, without a word about his work. form.
“I saw a lot of

) which took up questions and answers.
It's cool, everyone laughed, it was funny, says Neymar in Portuguese.
But the other day I posted my treatment here as soon as I woke up until the end of the day.
I haven't seen a single site that gave me credit:
Look how professional he is, he takes care of himself
You only post what sells.
And what sells is talking badly about other people.
What Neymar forgets to say is that he himself fueled speculation about his lifestyle by tweeting in the middle of the night his comments on a Brazilian reality TV show.
And again this is the most recent example.
Win back the public
Neymar's involvement in his rehabilitation process is certainly not questionable.
At the club, the leaders, Leonardo in the lead, praise the positive and flawless state of mind of the Parisian star.
"His commitment is irreproachable," repeated on France Bleu Paris the sports director engaged in discussions for an extension with the "Ney" and his entourage.
But by acting in this way, Neymar is also trying to rebuild his virginity after having multiplied the controversies in recent months with in particular his mega-New Year's party in the middle of Covid-19, New Year's Eve which he had finally given up in its XXL version.
Even if many are grateful to him for having spoken out against racism in football, the Brazilian has damaged his image, and his pranks like his numerous injuries have worn out some of his most fervent supporters.
“He's trying to win back the public, and it's a process,” comments Isabela Pagliari.
A journey that will necessarily go through sporting performance at the height of his status, and an optimal physical level that he strives to find.
As evidenced by his many photos and videos.
