Ligue 1 made a comeback yesterday and so did Neymar’s misfortunes at Paris Saint-Germain! Rarely spared from controversy since his arrival in the capital, the international auriverde was eagerly awaited for his return to competition after a very complicated World Cup. Neymar said to himself “psychologically destroyed”but his desire to play against Strasbourg showed a certain desire to move on.
Unfortunately for him, his comeback turned into a nightmare. Victim of many Alsatian charges often unsanctioned, the Brazilian managed to be expelled by collecting two yellow cards in two minutes. Result: if Paris won in extremis against the club trained by Julien Stéphan (2-1), Neymar will miss the clash against RC Lens, runner-up to PSG in the standings, on January 1. And finally, the player would have left the Parc des Princes before the end of the match. Asked at a press conference, Christophe Galtier tried to defend his player.
“I can understand that there is frustration, anger in him, he had tried to find the rhythm, he had a real desire to play the next two games. (…) I regret that sometimes excessive commitment was not punished more severely on my players, which generated a little frustration for Ney. I can understand the simulation, I reviewed the images and there is simulation, it deserves a yellow card, but a few minutes before it takes a bad blow and I find that its first yellow is still very severe compared to the number of faults suffered by Ney and not small faults.
“Neymar will not play on January 1! I wonder if New Year’s Eve is ready”
But in Brazil, there is no room for excuses. As often, Neymar’s behavior does not pass. “Neymar receives two yellow cards in less than two minutes, both for idiotic reasons. First, he went to respond (to an opponent) and trailed his arm in his opponent’s face. Then he threw himself untouched inside the penalty area. Logically expelled»wrote the journalist of Globe, Thiago Benevenutte. World champion in 1970 with the Seleção, Gerson was much more provocative by evoking a theory that crossed the minds of many. “Neymar is expelled with a simulated penalty, and will not play on January 1! I wonder if New Year’s Eve is ready”relays UOL.
Finally, the famous consultant ofUOL Walter Casagrande got out the sulphur. “Sorry to everyone who excuses him everything, but with Neymar I have never been wrong since my first review in 2017 where I said he was spoiled. That’s it, we’re in 2023 and he’s still just as childish. Neymar once again demonstrates that he is an infantilized and spoiled person on and off the pitch. The problem is that no one has understood that there is no new or old Neymar. It is the same as usual, with simulations, provocations towards the adversary, nothing changes. He never changed, but many people still believe his speech. » It’s December 29, the current temperatures are slightly above average, but Neymar is already dressed for the rest of the winter.
