Messi and I went through hell in PSG — Neymar


Neymar Jr. has opened up on his experience in Paris Saint-Germain, PSG, after ending his six-year bout with the club alongside Lionel Messi, who joined in 2019.

Messi secured a move to Inter Miami while Neymar moved to Al-Hilal, however, both players moved to PSG from Barcelona with the hope of securing the Champions League for the Ligue 1 club.

Speaking about his and Messi’s experience at the Parisian club, Neymar explained that things were difficult for him and Messi at the club.

During their time in France, the club fans often times criticised them and even jeered them, despite being the top finest footballers in the world.

In an interview with Brazilian outlet Globo, Neymar said he was happy to see Messi move to the Major League Soccer following the end of the 2022-23 season.

“I was very happy for the year he (Messi) had, but at the same time very sad, because he lived both sides of the coin, he went to heaven with the Argentina team, won everything in recent years, and with Paris he lived hell. We lived through hell, both he and I.

“We get upset because we’re not there for nothing, we’re there to do our best, be champions, try to make history, That’s why we started playing together again, we came together there so we could make history. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it,” Neymar said.

“Messi left in a way that, for football, he didn’t deserve. For everything he is, everything he does, anyone who knows him knows, he is a guy who trains, who fights, if he loses he gets angry, and he was unfairly treated in my opinion. But at the same time, I was very happy that he won the World Cup. As you said, football was fair this time, since the Brazilian team lost, Messi deserved to end his career like this,” Neymar further said.
