Neymar rejected Real Madrid over Mourinho hair-cut demands

Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira has taken a swipe at Real Madrid after securing star Neymar to a new deal last week. The agreement has ended Real hopes of landing the Ballon d'Or nominee.

Oliveira says he told Neymar to end talks with Real "because they had an unfortunate and arrogant attitude, typical of a colonial mentality."

And he also revealed that if Neymar was going to join Real "Mourinho was going to require him to take a haircut while here he would be able to be as he wanted."
