Neymar sued by Santos supporter for deciding to join Barcelona

first_imgNeymar is being sued by a supporter of his former club Santos for choosing to quit for Barcelona, according to reports in Brazil.Globoesporte claim that Brazilian lawyer Luciano Pereira Caparroz, a lifelong Santos fan, is taking action against Neymar for signing a pre-contract agreement with Barca before the Club World Cup tie against the Catalan club in 2011.Caparroz claims he spent around £2,000 to travel to Japan to attend the match, which Santos lost 4-0, and was furious to discover that Neymar had signed the deal with Barca beforehand.He has now filed a lawsuit against Neymar and N&N, the company owned by the player’s father which represents him, in a Sao Paulo cour for the amount of £6,600.Caporroz wants the money to cover the costs of his journey to Japan and as compensation for ‘morale damages’ associated with the player’s decision to leave Santos.He said: “I’m a Santista, I go to all the games and I decided to travel to Japan to watch the Club World Cup. I was left frustrated with the result and on top of that, later on we learned that Neymar was already sold. I feel cheated.” Neymar and N&N are yet to comment on the case.last_img
