Football Star Neymar Jr To Play Poker Full-Time Post Retirement?


Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) football player Neymar Jr recently expressed his love for poker. He mentioned that after retiring from football, he would like to become a professional poker player. The 29-year-old footballer has been playing poker since 2014 and has developed a passion for the game. 

When asked about his goal to become a professional poker player, Neymar said, “It is true that I love to play poker. I feel very comfortable playing the game and I think that after playing football, I will be entirely capable of grinding and traveling for tournaments. I have always wanted to participate in poker tournaments, and I could not do so because of my career.”

He further added, “When I finish my career as a football player, poker is one of the things I am surely going to do. Both need a lot of focus. I believe that one of the most important things in football is that I can read the game, the pitch, and the opponents. In poker, it is the same as you have to read the game, opponents and know when is the right time to attack your opponent.”

It was recently reported that Neymar Jr will be collaborating with PokerStars as the cultural ambassador of the brand. Neymar Jr will be creating projects that are inspired by culture, designs, music, art, and more.

In the past, Neymar had created a series of soundtracks that resonate with every poker game for the brand. Martin Nieri, global director of brand and creative at PokerStars.net said, “Neymar Jr is a globally recognized sports star and his new role will mark the start of something truly exciting for PokerStars.net.”
