Having scored twice in PSG’s 6-2 win over Toulouse, Neymar had every reason to be content after his first home game with his new team, but somehow he found himself asked about Barcelona in the mixed zone, and he didn’t avoid the questions.
When I arrived, everything started well but then… at Barcelona, there are directors that shouldn’t be there. I’m very sad with them
the Brazilian star said, making it clear from the first moment that his problem with Barcelona has exclusively to do with the board of directors, some members of it, and not with anyone else at the club.
I had four very happy years there, but Barca deserve much better. I have a lot of friends there, I hope things get better for Barca
Neymar also said, before repeating
some of the board members should not be there
echoing the belief of many Barcelona fans as well, who are anything but fond of Josep Maria Bartomeu, the current president, and some of his associates.
PSG’s new number 10 equalized in the 31st minute (1-1), and was the one who made it 6-2 in added time, putting the cherry on top for the Paris side who had Marco Verratti sent of in the 69th minute, with the score at 2-1, but still went on to triumph, 6-2.
