Mikael Lustig was full of praise talking about Neymar after PSG’s resounding 5-0 win at Celtic Park, regarding his skill, his level, his… stardom. He didn’t hesitate to… suggest him something though, talking about his behaviour on the pitch.
He’s up there with the best already – he’s so sharp and is an amazing footballer. He is probably the toughest opponent in the world right now
the Celtic defender first told reporters, bowing to Neymar’s talent. He didn’t stop there though.
It was the same as usual from him. He is an unbelievable footballer but we have seen the other stuff before and we will see it again. I have said before that it’s part of his game. He tries to over-react a bit to make the defender step off. We will see it again and again
Lustig said, before urging him to consider changing his attitude.
If he wants to be liked as much as Messi, maybe he needs to stop that
the Swede also said, words with which even big Neymar fans could agree. The Brazilian scored PSG’s first goal in their 5-0 triumph in Glasgow, but he was booked for simulation, and generally frustrated Celtic’s players and fans trying constantly to earn calls from the referee.
