Neymar can't stop, won't stop partying hard

Brazilian soccer star Neymar appears to have two things on his mind -- winning a gold medal and partying hard. The attacker, preparing for the Olympic games as he tries to lead his nation to glory, was asked about his off-the-pitch lifestyle, which has seen him partying in United States this summer, hanging out with celebrities like Serena Williams and much more.

And he said he won't stop.

"I think you have to start by looking at what I do on the pitch," Neymar said during a Tuesday press conference, per Reuters. "The moment I am off the field it's my personal time.

"I like to go out and have fun with my friends. I have family too so why can't I go out to clubs? I can and I will. I am well aware what my duties are the next day. I am going to keep going out and I don't see anything wrong with that."

Well, that's pretty clear. Neymar has always been quality on the pitch and hasn't seemed to let his partying get in the way. It's not like he is showing up to training out of shape or unprepared. In fact, he's never really gotten in trouble for things away from the field.

And it looks like he has made quite the impact on Lionel Messi.

Now, if he wants to go out and have fun with friends, there is nothing wrong with that as long as he remembers his priorities when it comes to work, which he seems to.

But Ney, just stay away from this guy.
