29-year-old Neymar is now a cultural ambassador for the gambling company and has revealed that he’s also thinking about going into poker permanently. He loves the game so much that he has named his pet dog ‘Poker’.

“It’s true I plan to turn pro. I feel very comfortable playing poker, and think I can play in major tournaments after my football career is over,” Neymar said.

“I began playing during the 2014 World Cup, and I have fallen in love with the game. I play poker in an aggressive fashion. My favourite hands are a pair of tens – after my shirt number – and Jack-Five.

“There are similarities between football and poker, in the ways how you read your game and your opponent, and choose when to attack. I used to play it a lot while with Barcelona, and we play often at PSG.
