Smiling and cheerful as almost always, the world’s most expensive football player gave his first Press conference as a PSG player, explaining why he chose to leave Barcelona and join the Paris club.
I wanted something bigger, a bigger challenge. My heart wanted a new ambition, that’s why I’m here in front of you. This is what my heart told me to do. I listen to my heart every day. And my heart told me to go to PSG
Neymar said, repeating the word ‘heart’ several times, as if emphasizing on why he made the decision to leave a club like Barcelona.
A lot of people wanted me to talk about it but it’s very complicated when you’re not sure about something. I wasn’t 100 per cent sure about what I wanted to do. It was impossible for me to answer. But as soon as I made the decision, I started communicating. I’m very happy. I always ask my heart and it told me to go to PSG
the Brazilian star repeated. Was it important for him that PSG already have a number of Brazilian players?
To be really honest, it wouldn’t have changed my approach at all if Brazilians weren’t here. This wasn’t an easy decision, as I’ve said. I wanted to think about what I wanted to do with my life
Neymar said, adding that if coach Unai Emery decides to play him tomorrow against Amiens, in the first game of the Ligue 1 season, he’s ready.
