Nenê: PSG will always have a place in my heart
Former Paris Saint-Germain winger Nenê bid an emotional farewell to fans by announcing the French capital will always have a place in his heart.
The 31-year-old signed for Qatari club Al-Gharafa after becoming frustrated with the lack of playing opportunities under Carlo Ancelotti, despite being the club’s top scorer with 21 Ligue 1 goals last season.
However, the Brazilian displayed no hint of bitterness as he took to the pitch to rapturous applause from 32,000 fans during half-time of PSG’s routine 3-1 victory over Toulouse on Wednesday.
Nenê told PSG TV: "I had some fantastic moments at Paris Saint-Germain and it has been very emotional tonight. The fans showed me a lot of love here.
"The club will always have a place in my heart, so I just needed to drop by and say so to the fans and my former teammates one last time."
Nenê, who made more than 100 appearances for PSG, was expected to return to his homeland amid interest from Santos and Corinthians.
