Neymar; ‘This Has Been My Best Season at Barca’
Neymar has hailed this season as his best season at Barcelona, from a personal standpoint. The Brazilian is bringing the curtain down on his fourth season with the club and he says that he thinks it has been his finest individually.
Neymar netted a first half hat trick in a 4-1 win over Las Palmas at the weekend and has been in outstanding form this season. Reflecting on his campaign with the Barcelona website, he said, “It’s an excellent season for me.
“I think it’s my best since I arrived at the Club. I am scoring goals and creating goals. What I want is to play with the best in the world and Leo Messi is the best player in the world. This year I have felt really good,”
The ex-Santos man took centre stage during the incredible Champions League comeback against PSG in March, having lost the first leg 4-0, Barca won the second 6-1, with Neymar netting a crucial late free-kick to inspire the team to victory.
“I have a winner’s character. I don’t like to lose. Against PSG, it was an unusual match. We were almost out and we achieved a miracle with the three goals in three minutes to get through. It’s one of the best memories of my career. I will always remember it.
“After the first leg, we knew we could score four goals and get through. When they [PSG] scored in the second leg, nobody thought we were out. We couldn’t give up in the game. Since I was little, they have taught me that a football game finishes only when the referee blows the final whistle.”
