Neymar's not only in charge at Paris Saint-Germain, where he has a blank cheque from president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, but he's also gaining increasing control with the Brazilian national team.

Both with his club and his country, the former Barcelona star is beginning to accumulate privileges which go beyond the pitch. The most recent being the incorporation of his personal fitness trainer, Ricardo Rosa, with the Brazil team. It's a situation similar to what happened upon his arrival at PSG. 

In Neymar's last three seasons with Barça, his personal trainer, Rosa, and his personal physio, Rafael Martini, both lived in Barcelona. Their salaries and all their expenses were charged Neymar's father's company. 

Both Rosa and Martini would go to the Ciutat Esportiva de Sant Joan Despí on a daily basis. There, they would watch the sessions and co-ordinate with the club, when Luis Enrique was manager still, about what they would be doing with Neymar. The relationship was fluid. 

This summer, when Ney landed in Paris, he managed to land the duo a wage with Qatar Sports Investments. Unai Emery was left with no other option but to integrate them to his team. 

Now, with the national team, Rosa has become one of the two fitness coaches who will work with Brazil in the lead up to the World Cup in Russia next summer. The CBF justify his arrival by indicating that Tite has increased the number of people on his coaching staff to 24 professionals.
