Romario Running for Rio Governor

football forums

Recommended Posts

Brazil and PSG forward Neymar has given his backing to Romario who is currently fighting an election to be Rio de Janeiro next state governor.

Romario, who won a World Cup with Brazil as well as the FIFA Player of the Year award in 1994, began his political career in 2010 after retiring. He is currently a senator in Brazil's congress.

Romario's social media channels published a video of Neymar backing his bid to become governor saying: "Speak, Romario. I'm here to tell you that I support you. You and everyone who is with you.

"I hope you can improve Rio de Janeiro a lot, that I am a frequent visitor and I love this city very much."

Neymar has previously shown his political support in 2014 when he backed the Brazilian Social Democracy party's then-presidential candidate Aecio Neves.

I've read an interview on him and he's been working on this for years. Many people laugh footballers like Weah or Romario in this case off because they were footballers, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to pursue other interests after they retire.

Now I'm no politics expert but Romario's views seem fair enough to me.
