The attacker of the Brazilian team and the French PSG Neymar Júnior thanked his followers for the messages of support after the “scare” that happened this Tuesday when the plane that was transporting him back to Brazil made a “precautionary” landing in the city of Boa Vista (north).
“I’m going to thank you for all the messages, but everything is fine and we’re already going home. It was just a scare,” Neymar said in a video posted on his Instagram profile inside a plane, although without specifying if it was the same aircraft or was it another.

Shortly before Neymar’s statement to his followers, his press office issued a statement reporting that all passengers and crew members of the aircraft were “well” in the capital of the Amazonian state of Roraima, which borders Venezuela.
“Due to a small problem in the windshield of the NR Sports company plane, where the athlete Neymar Jr., his sister Rafaella Santos and Bruna Biancardi were, the pilot decided, as a precaution, to make an early landing in Boa Vista, until the problem can be resolved,” the press release said.
“We inform everyone that the passengers are fine, waiting to resume the trip,” added the advice of the 30-year-old footballer.
The ESPN Brasil channel, the first to report on the incident, indicated that the luxurious Cessna 680 Citation plane, which belongs to the firm Neymar Sport E Marketingwas manufactured in 2008 and has a market price of 94 million reais (about 18.8 million dollars).

After the technical repair, to avoid effects on the pressurization, the aircraft must continue to Sao Paulo, as planned since it left the US city of Fort Lauderdale on Monday night.
