Neymar sends heartfelt message to Santos after their relegation

Neymar expressed solidarity with his former team Santos after they suffered relegation from the Brazilian Serie A for the first time in their history.

Santos’ fate was sealed with a 2-1 defeat to Fortaleza, coupled with Bahia’s 4-1 victory over Atletico Mineiro and Vasco da Gama’s win against Red Bull Bragantino. Santos needed a win or for either Bahia or Vasco to falter to avoid relegation to Serie B.

Neymar posted images of himself during his time at Santos, adding the caption: “Santos always Santos”.

Alongside Neymar, Real Madrid sensation Rodrygo, who came through the ranks at the Brazilian club before leaving in 2019, wrote his support on Instagram: “I’ll be Santos even if the ball doesn’t go in, even if the stadium remains silent, even if the Sacred Mantle fades, even if victory is far away. I’ll be Santos, whether the journey is long, if the journey is hard, Santos in my chest & my soul, my chants & in my palms.”

Santos’ relegation from the top-flight is a historic and unprecedented event for the club. The surprising turn of events in the Serie A campaign also saw Botafogo, who once held a substantial 13-point lead at the top of the table, lose the title to Palmeiras. Unexpected twists and outcomes have marked the season.
