‘PSG Fans Don’t Need to Cheer for Me’ Says Philosophical Neymar
PSG forward Neymar is philosophical about the booing he received from PSG fans today during the team’s win over Strasbourg.
Neymar made his first appearance since a fractious summer in which Barcelona came close to re-signing the Brazilian.
Neymar scored an outrageous bicycle kick during the victory, “I've played in several stadiums and been booed. It's sad, but I know from now on it will be like playing every game away from home.
“I make it clear that I have nothing against the fans, or anything against Paris Saint-Germain, but all I know I wanted to leave, and I made that clear.
“But I won't go into the details of what happened in the negotiations. The people here know what happened and this is a page turned now.
“Today I am a PSG player and I promise to give everything on the pitch, fulfill my role and be happy on the pitch. I don't need to have my name chanted.”
