The Brazilian has a dig at the Blues.
The latest big signing at Barcelona, Neymar, has revealed why he snubbed the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid in favour of the Catalans.
Whilst all three sides have huge financial power and will be playing Champions League football in 2013/14, the Brazilian is not a fan of the clubs’ managerial policies.
“My family spoke to me about joining a club where you could not just win things but where there is stability,” Neymar was quoted in the Daily Express.
“I don’t want to play for a club that changes coach every season.”
The 21-year-old has agreed a deal with Barca after the Spanish giants paid £24.6m to Santos for the South American starlet.
Yet it seems that the forward selected the Catalan club not just for their illustrious history, but also the stability and consistency they show to their managers.
Whilst Barca choose to appoint their managers from within the club – with former player and coach Pep Guardiola being succeeded by the Spaniard’s assistant Tito Vilanova – Chelsea have hired nine permanent managers in as many years.
It’s a similar story at the Santiago Bernabeu as in the same period Los Blancos have hired 10 different bosses and Manchester City recently sacked Roberto Mancini after just three years in charge.
Neymar meanwhile is quite the capture for Barca as the striker is being touted as a future Ballon D’Or winner and has scored 41 goals in 48 games for club and country during the current campaign.
