Paris Saint Germain winger, Neymar has taken to his Instagram page to announce that his new three-part documentary series titled “Neymar: The Perfect Chaos” will be out on January 25, 2022.
The popular streaming platform, Netflix has released the trailer for the documentary which showed the rise of the 29-year-old Brazilian footballer from the slums of Brazil to the top of European football.
The documentary highlighted how Neymar actualized his childhood dream of being a football great from Brazilian club, Santos, to his €88 million transfer from Santos to FC Barcelona on July 1, 2013.
It also highlighted Neymar’s exploit in the Spanish La Liga and Brazil’s national team. And went on to project how Neymar became the most expensive player in the history of football when he joined PSG for €222 million on August 3, 2017.
Since then, no player has been able to attract such a transfer fee which means that the 29-year-old Brazil international has remained the most expensive footballer in the world for over five years.

Neymar’s Documentary could change people’s perception of the player
In an interview with ESPN ahead of the release of “Neymar: The Perfect Chaos” on January 25, the Brazilian football icon said the documentary could help to change people’s perception of him.
“Those who know me know who I am and that’s what matters to me,” Neymar told ESPN.
“As for those who don’t know me and just speak bad things about me, I just put them aside, but I hope they can still watch this documentary and hopefully it can change their idea or the image they have of me.
“I hope they can learn to like me … even a little!
“Few people really know the real me. Just my closest friends, my family, some teammates, and now I feel I can show a bit more of my life, of how I am on my day-to-day, at work, at home, how I am as a father, a son, a brother. I hope this documentary shows that side to people.
“It’s what we’ve worked on, we’re showing the truth, 100 percent, and that’s what matters most.”
Why the documentary is called Neymar: “The Perfect Chaos”?
On why the documentary is called “The Perfect Chaos”, Neymar said his life has been a perfect chaos which means a mixture of the good, bad, and ugly.
Over the years, the footballer’s name is linked to a series of controversies and he has been a victim of criticism both at his club and in Brazil’s national team.
“It’s called that because my life has always been like that,” Neymar said.
“Ever since I was six months old, I was in an accident with my parents and, well, that’s when the chaos began. We recovered after and nothing happened to me.
“Then, after I became a footballer. Of course, I’ve had very happy moments, but I’ve still had a lot of chaos in my life”.
“You must have your head on straight, so you don’t fall or crumble,” he added.
“Family and friends are important, but my teammates are too. They’re always behind me so that when I have a sad day they can help with a word or a hug to make me feel better.
“But, I think now I am strong. I’m a strong man, not just physically but in my head too because I have to deal with so much pressure, because of who I am, because of where I play, because I’m Brazilian, and a lot of other things.”
