Signed with us to win all possible trophies and write new pages in the history of the club in the most beautiful city in the world – Paris. ”
“I am very pleased, I am very happy with this new challenge. PSG is a big club, except Paris is a fabulous city. I find no words to explain what my heart feels, “Ney Junior began. “I came for the ambition of this club, and it coincides with mine. I’m looking for something bigger, new challenge, my heart begged me to do it, “the Brazilian smiled.
“Have I wanted a bigger role in the team? No, I did not miss that. My wish to come to PSG is a new challenge, to look for something different. It’s not because I felt uncomfortable. ”
“The Lord does things at the right time. He made my heart request it. It was one of the most difficult choices in my life, because I had adapted very well in the city, the club, created a great deal with the fantastic football players of Barca. Thank you very much to all of Barca’s players. They welcomed me very warmly when I arrived from Brazil. I also had challenges in Barca, but I needed new incentives. I spoke to the Brazilians in PSG, who are my good friends. Now I feel at home, “confided the new number 10 of the French team.
“I did not come because I have friends here, but because of more global things. I was thinking a lot. (…) Thanks to all Barcelona fans. I was greeted very well. There is nothing to complain about. I think I created a story, won a lot of trophies, scored many goals and helped Bartza in the best possible way, “he continued.
Asked if he had left Camp Nou because he felt in the shadow of Lionel Messi, Neymar replied: “On the contrary. Messi was one of the reasons why I went to Barcelona. He is my idol. I wanted to play with the best. Thanks very much to Messi for the way he met me and his help over these four years. ”
“I think there is a misconception about the level of football. I have spoken to many people who have played here, have watched games, and I think it’s not easy, but on the contrary – I have a great challenge. I think PSG has the potential to be the best team in the world, “said the former Barcelona player.
Tomorrow Neymar will be officially presented at the PSG stadium before the match of the first round of League 1.
