Paris Saint-Germain beat Guingamp 3-0 away from home in what was Neymar’s first match for his new team, and Dani Alves was full of praise for his compatriot after his positive start as a PSG player.
I believe he showed why PSG wanted to sign him, to be decisive as he was and help our team achieve good results
the Brazilian full-back said, having seen Neymar set up a goal for Edinson Cavani, and then score one himself.
He performed well, and all of us had great expectations about this match too. We wanted him to have his debut and help us, and no doubt we’re stronger with him now
Alves told reporters, before commenting on what is it that makes Neymar such a special player, such a special ‘star’.
A player cannot rely only on his name to make a difference, but also has to work hard and make things happen on the pitch. And that’s Neymar’s differential, he’s not only a global name, he deserves his greatness
the 34-year-old said. On Sunday, PSG are hosting Toulouse, a truly… historic game, since it will be Neymar’s first at Parc des Princes wearing his new club’s jersey.
