In 2019, Neymar alienated a good part of the Parisian supporters when he expressed the wish to leave the club to return to FC Barcelona. The rest, everyone knows it: in addition to finally staying at PSG, Neymar extended there the following year. An episode to which the Brazilian once again returned.

Neymar had nothing to do with whistles!

In his documentary, “Neymar, the perfect chaos” broadcast on Netflix, the native of Mogi das Cruzes revealed the reasons for his departure: “When I decided to leave PSG, it wasn’t because of the fans or the club. I just knew that I would feel better somewhere else. I want to leave the club, I don’t want to stay here but I have to be happy, train and be ready to play. Because if I have a bad game, nobody says: “Paris played badly”. No, everything falls on the shoulders of Neymar. A defeat in the Champions League or in Ligue 1, if I’m on the pitch, it’s a defeat for Neymar and not for the team. It’s my burden and I know I’m held responsible” he said at first before his father added: “We tried to reach an amicable agreement but we couldn’t leave“.

The Parisian star then returned to the boos of the Parc des Princes against him during the match against Strasbourg: “I couldn’t believe it. And yet. I arrive, my name appears, I touch the ball and I get booed. Honestly? I like this atmosphere (laughs). I don’t know… When people are against me… I think of myself. I believe in myself. I think I do it, I will succeed. I don’t care about their feelings” he concluded.

to summarize

Neymar returned from his abortive return to FC Barcelona in the summer of 2019. The Brazilian confirmed once again that he was not happy in Paris at that time. And that he had taken a certain humor from the whistles against him against Strasbourg.
