Former Paris Saint-Germain player Xavi Simons has claimed that Neymar treated him like his son during his time at the French capital.
Xavi is now plying his trade with Dutch giants PSV but is eyeing a move back to PSG in the summer.
Neymar and Xavi had known each other all the way from Barcelona as well and moved to PSG in different seasons, but the connection between them continued.
Xavi has now opened up on his relationship with the Brazil international, saying that the former Barcelona ace was helpful in Paris.
“Being able to speak Spanish, French, and Dutch, I could almost speak to everyone. Neymar, knowing me since I was a kid, helped me a lot,” he told Marca.
“We had a very good relationship. He looked after me like a son practically. I will be eternally grateful to him.”
Speaking more on Lionel Messi and Neymar, the Dutchman said it was special being and playing with both stars who he described as the best in the world.
