Brazilian star Neymar described the time he and Messi spent at Paris Saint-Germain as hell.
This came in an interview with a major Brazilian newspaper Oh Globo Neymar talks about his relationship with Lionel Messi and his exit from the French capital club.
At the same time that Messi was struggling at PSG, he was wreaking havoc on the national team and won the World Cup in Qatar with Argentina.
– I am very happy for him, but at the same time very sad that he lived on both sides. Neymar says: He lived the dream with Argentina, but he went through hell with Paris Saint-Germain.
We both went through hell. Both he and I. We felt bad because we went out there to do our best and make history.
Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 and stayed there for six years. And in 2021, Messi followed his old colleague to Paris. Both left PSG this summer. Messi signed with Inter Miami in the United States, while Neymar signed with Al Hilal Saudi Arabia.
– That’s why we started playing on the same team again. We wanted to make history, but unfortunately we couldn’t.
The end at PSG for Messi was the bad kind. He was suspended by the club for a period of time due to his absence from a training session. He also came into conflict with fans who thought he was not doing enough for the team.
Chaos left Paris Saint-Germain in a way that football does not deserve. And everyone who knows him knows what he stands for. He is a man who fights and if he loses he gets angry. Neymar says: He was treated unfairly from my point of view.
