“Everything that has been said from the outside”, that is what has created tension regarding Neymar and his relationship with his teammates and coach, at least according to Julian Draxler.
The German midfielder talked to reporters ahead of Germany’s friendly game against France, and pretty much blamed the media for creating a false picture of what really is going on inside PSG’s dressing room.
There was the story of the penalty with Edinson, which was settled after one or two days. However, everybody else kept talking about it for four or five weeks afterwards
the former Schalke and Wolfsburg player said, trying to show how out of proportion things were blown, after that on-field ‘disagreement’ between Neymar and Edinson Cavani, over a penalty and a free-kick take in the match against Lyon.
I believe that this is part and parcel of life as a superstar like Neymar. A lot of incorrect things are said about him. He is a young man, full of respect, who knows how important he is to the team
Draxler also said. Does Neymar really have ‘special privileges’ at PSG though? And how do the rest of the players feel about it?
It is for this reason that he gets a few privileges. Perhaps he also demanded them, I do not know. However, a player like him has the right to do that. The other players are not jealous or angry about this
the German said, drawing a very flattering portrait of his Brazilian teammate.
