Neymar: Everyone knew that I wanted to leave, but the page is turned

Neymar was booed by Paris Saint-Germain fans but scored a brilliant winner on his return to action in a 1-0 victory over Strasbourg. After the match, he reveals he wanted to leave the club.

Neymar: “Everyone knew that I wanted to leave. I said it and I repeated it. I do not want to go into details.

“The page is turned. I am a PSG player and now I am going to give everything on the pitch.”

The reception from the home crowd couldn’t have come as a major surprise given the statement released before the game from PSG supporters’ group Collectif Ultras Paris.

“He has put in place a disastrous communication strategy to try and force a move to Barcelona, one of our main European rivals, leaving his entourage to speak in his place… except when it comes to discussing his best memories!” the statement read.
