Neymar has named David Beckham as the source of inspiration for his flashy haircuts and outfits.

Paris Saint Germain superstar Neymar, just a few days before celebrating his 28th birthday, revealed his new look after deciding to dye his hair pink.

As often evident from his choice of getup, Neymar does not shy away from putting on a flamboyant appearance.

Just like Neymar, David Beckham was also known for his extraordinary haircuts during his days on the pitch. The Inter Miami president is also regarded as one of the most fashionable people on the planet.

And the Brazilian says he has learned the art of style from former Real Madrid and Manchester United superstar.

“I copied quite a few of his haircuts. I think he is one of the most stylish people in the world, so we need to copy him,” Neymar told Otro.

“We are not as handsome as him, but we try to copy him! I think we needed to have a pioneer. Someone who was brave enough to do this, I think the courage David has is a symbol of this.

“I am also criticized for getting a different haircut. Or for wearing a different outfit. I think the criticism never ends.”
