Neymar told Globoesporte: “We were there to do our best, to win titles, to try to make history. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it. We went through hell, he and I. That makes it us sad.”
The 31-year-old is particularly upset about the way Messi’s departure from France went: “He didn’t deserve it. Everyone knows he’s a guy who trains, who fights and if he loses, he becomes he was angry. In my opinion, he was treated unfairly.”Messi’s recent appearances in the PSG shirt have been a gauntlet run for the Argentine. Even in his last home game he was mercilessly hissed at by the fans.
Neymar and Messi played together in Paris for two seasons. The two teammates had already been from 2013 to 2017, at that time still in Spain at FC Barcelona. Now their paths parted again. Messi joined Beckham club Inter Miami in Major League Soccer (MLS) on a free transfer this summer, while Neymar went to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia for around 90 million euros.
