FUTEBOL ADDICT DRAWING COMPARISONS TO ROBINHO

Neymar is a child prodigy who lives and breathes football. "All he does is play football. In the street, in the backyard, in any place possible and impossible" advises his father, Neymar Senior.

It's this addiction to the game that prompted his old man, to persuade Santos to take a look at him. From then on, it was the youngster's breathtaking talent that did the talking. It took Santos coaches just one, solitary look at Neymar to become convinced of his class. He subsequently joined the youth ranks of the 2004 Brazilian Champions, where his qualities have been allowed to flourish.

Neymar's idol is Santos' current first team attraction Robinho - himself only 21 years old. Comparisons between the two have been frequent given that the 13-year-old is an instinctive dribbler, with electric pace and constant desire of the ball. For now, he must be content to follow the continual progression of Robinho but those who know him, remain in no doubt, that one day he will be in a collateral position to his hero. "He's only a child but he has everything to become a star of the future," concluded his proud father.
