As a footballer, Neymar has achieved almost everything. But after Champions League and league titles, the Brazilian is yet to win the World Cup. Neymar wants to change that. The winger is enthusiastic about Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp.
Superstar Neymar hopes to win the World Cup in Qatar. “It’s what we’re striving for, and I believe that we have what it takes to fight for the title,” said the 30-year-old Brazilian on MagentaTV’s “Best Filling” show, which will be broadcast from Thursday. “I don’t know, but I’m going to play like it’s my last game.”

Neymar is delighted with Jurgen Klopp
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has great admiration for Jürgen Klopp. The German coach, who has been on the sidelines at Liverpool FC since 2015, won the Champions League and the English championship with the Reds, among other things. Klopp has twice been voted World Club Coach of the Year. “He’s one of the greatest in my opinion,” said Neymar. “Everyone has something that can be improved, that can be further developed. I’m sure coaches like Klopp can bring out the best in every player.”
