Ex-Santos President Claims Chunk Of Neymar’s €90m Fee Was Used To Fund ‘Orgy’ For His Father

Spain Soccer Barcelona Neymar Tax Fraud

Thumbs-up if your old man’s a grubby little git!

Former Santos president, Luis Alvaro Ribeiro has claimed that large chunks of the notoriously – shall we say…convoluted £73million transfer fee that took Neymar from the Brazilian club to Barcelona last summer were used to fund the lavish tendencies of the player’s tag-along father, up to and including an orgies at a London hotel.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN Brazil, Ribeiro, who left his post at Santos several months ago due to ill health, said:

“Included in the €90 million that Barcelona supposedly paid for Neymar was coffee for his father and an orgy at the Piccadilly Hotel in London.

“Neymar’s father charged off everything. He never paid for a coffee. I paid for all 200 coffees he drank with me. That also includes a plane to take him to Florianapolis to see the national team.

“There was no lack of money. He had [Andre] Cury with him, a Barcelona advisor, who spent almost the same as Neymar Snr.

“Neymar’s father is a liar, he’s only thinking about the money.

“To give you an idea, in the last contracts, he demanded a clause in which the club should pay him for first class tickets and two in business class for his advisors when there was an away game.

“The same for the national team or the Paulista tournament. A man with the money he has - he earned €1million a month.

“He had a 70-foot yacht and two houses on the coast of Sao Paulo. He even put up walls so his son could have parties without his mother’s knowledge.

“I’m disappointed. He is a two-faced liar.

“I thought Neymar’s father was my friend, but today, if I saw him in front on my car, I might step on the accelerator.”

Colour us surprised.
