‘I want to continue to play football and be happy, that is the most important thing, With Kylian Mbappe, we have a relationship of brothers. I am the eldest. We really like to play together. I want to get the best out of him. He’s a golden boy. I call him ‘Golden Boy’ because he’s really golden. He has a huge heart. As a footballer you know what he is worth, but even off the pitch he is amazing,’ Neymar said further.
