The canceled drama of Neymar Jr from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) still caused confusion among fans of Les Parisiens. The Brazilian passport player has not even been able to release the pressure that is weighing on his shoulders.
This happened because Neymar had said that he insisted he would leave PSG during the summer transfer window. It was Neymar’s statement that he wanted to be sold to other clubs in the 2019/2020 summer transfer market that sparked a reaction from fans.
Fans firmly stated that they did not want to see the figure of the former Barcelona star in the PSG squad this season. Unfortunately, the transfer scenario from PSG that Neymar had designed was only a plan, because he remained in the Thomas Tuchel squad.
Although he was sentenced to several matches not played, but Tuchel still missed Neymar. He finally played and has scored six goals in all competitions. But the attitude of the Red and Blue fans towards Neymar has not changed.
They keep giving a strong reaction every time the player with the back number 10 is added to Tuchel. “This is not a simple situation. The fans express themselves and I really understand it. They have the right to express themselves,” Tuchel was quoted as saying by Marca, Wednesday (09/10/2019).
“They are proud of their club and it’s not good to hear one of your players say week after week that Neymar wants to leave. I have told him that we need to face this reality. There is pressure for him to act well and change his opinion,” he added.
Tuchel stressed that although Neymar no longer had the support of fans, the player and coach relations remained good. “I knew he wanted to go and he knew I was against him because it didn’t seem like the right time or the right decision for me. As a coach, obviously, I didn’t want to lose him. But, in the end, we both knew the decision wasn’t for him or made me. So that shouldn’t affect the way we work together. “
Furthermore, Tuchel said Neymar’s decision to play or not was in his hands. He said it was in the hands of the director.
“The club’s position is very clear, that Neymar will not play until he says he will stay. That helps me because I can concentrate on the other group members. I don’t need to ask whether he will play or not because the decision is clear and comes from the top floor. , “concluded Tuchel.
