PSG manager says Neymar hasn’t congratulated team on Ligue 1 title, speaks on players’ future

Published

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Unai Emery, has revealed that Neymar has not called him since they thrashed Monaco 7-1 to clinch the Ligue 1 title.

Emery stated this in an interview with Cadena Cope.

“I spoke with Neymar two or three weeks ago to see how he was and what idea he had of joining the group in training,” he said.

“The players have a chat, so Neymar has direct communication with the players as well as the club and I.

“I have a very good relationship with Neymar. He is committed to the team, to Brazil and he is concerned about his recovery. Neymar is very eager to return and to play one game before the end of the season – that is what he told me when we chatted two weeks ago.”

On the player’s future, Emery said he felt Neymar would stay at the Parc des Princes, despite speculation linking him with a move away.

“I see Neymar in Paris, I honestly feel that – the union between him and PSG will continue,” he said.

“Neymar has it clear what he wants at an individual and collective level. We spoke about it at the beginning of the season with him and the president, and that project remains in place.

“Neymar is searching to have the maximum role at PSG, and PSG is searching to have a big starring role with Neymar’s aid. I would not understand a PSG without Neymar, and Neymar would not understand himself without PSG.”

He said it was “normal that top clubs are interested in him” and added: “He is considered to be, and is proving to be, among the best three players in the world. Of course, at some point, top clubs can knock on the door.”
