The father of Barcelona starlet Neymar sealed his son's £75 million transfer to Spain with a celebratory orgy at a top hotel in London, according to the former President of Brazilian football club Santos.
Neymar, 24, moved from Santos in his homeland of Brazil to Barcelona last summer and his bumper contract was celebrated by his father with a wild party with escort girls - in London.
"The fee included 'coffee money'– a tip – for Neymar's father," said former Santos chief Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro in an interview with ESPN Brazil. "It also paid for an orgy in London. I don't know why Neymar Sr should have made anything in the deal. It was one of the most luxurious hotels, where the Queen's had tea. That £75m was excessive. It included hookers and a private jet."
Ribeiro continued to criticise Neymar's father Neymar da Silva saying he is "a liar and only thinks about money."
"I thought Neymar's father was my friend, but today, if I saw him in front on my car, I might step on the accelerator."
The participants in the orgy are unknown and there is no suggestion that Neymar Junior was at the party last year.
this is, what, the 3rd corruption scandal involving Barcelona in the last few months?
~more than a club~ indeed
