The big news broke this summer that Brazilian superstar, and Police sunglasses ambassador, Neymar Jr had signed a new two-year extension on his sponsorship deal. We could not contain our excitement, here at B Sunglasses.
Not only because we’re big fans of the footballer, but it means that Police will introduce another sublime range of Neymar Jr sunglasses. The previous range was absolutely incredible and we can only hope the next range is even half as good. We thought we’d take this opportunity to delve a little deeper and explore the man who’s the face of the iconic Italian brand.
Following in the long tradition of Brazilian superstars, Neymar Jr honed his ability by playing street football and futsal. The skill and cunning it takes to be a top futsal player has resulted in the Brazilian national team being famed for producing attacking players with an abundance of flair, and Neymar Jr is no different. The prodigious talent began his career at Santos, he signed for the youth team at the age of 13. Naturally the forward was compared with Santos and Brazil legend Pele, as is the case of most promising young Brazilian forwards. Although Pele’s feats will be hard to replicate, Neymar Jr has gone on to become one of the most accomplished strikers in world football.
After rising through the youth ranks at Santos, Neymar Jr made his professional debut in 2009 and scored 14 goals in his first season as a professional. The diminutive forward went from strength to strength and became the focal point of the Santos attack. As is the case with most South American superstars he was courted by many of the major European clubs, he eventually went on to sign for Barcelona in the summer of 2013 for a staggering €57.1 million. Neymar Jr is now part of, arguably, the most potent strike force in world football linking up with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. The striker’s career has also been remarkable at the international level; at the age of only 23 he is fifth on the list of all time top scorers for Brazil having netted an astounding 44 goals in 64 games.
A hero to millions of Brazilians and a cultural icon across the whole of South America, Neymar Jr looks to be a solid acquisition for the Police sunglasses brand.
