Former PSG Midfielder Urges Neymar to Leave Club Due to Disappointment and Protests by Fans
Former Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) midfielder, Jerome Rothen, has called on Neymar to leave the club, citing that the Brazilian, like his teammate Lionel Messi, has been a disappointment to the club. This comes after a recent protest by PSG fans in front of Neymar’s residence in Bougival, Paris. The PSG supporters were protesting against Neymar, who is currently out of action for the remainder of the season following ankle surgery.
ROTHEN’S COMMENTS ON NEYMAR AND MESSI
In an interview with RMC Sport, Rothen stated that Neymar should leave PSG due to recent events, which have taken a toll on the relationship between the club and its supporters. Rothen believes that PSG fans have grown tired of Neymar’s shortcomings and disappointing performances, which have persisted over the years. He also mentioned that Neymar has had opportunities to prove himself every year since he joined the club but has failed to deliver, just like Lionel Messi. Rothen concluded his statement by saying “Goodbye.”
NEYMAR’S TIME AT PSG
Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017, in a move that made him the most expensive player in the world. He has since won several domestic titles with the club but has been unable to help the team win the UEFA Champions League. PSG’s elimination from the Champions League this season has been a significant disappointment for fans, and Neymar’s recent injury and absence from the team have not helped his image among supporters.
THE RECENT PROTESTS
The recent protest by PSG fans in front of Neymar’s house is not the first time that the club’s supporters have expressed their frustration with the Brazilian. Neymar has faced criticism for his perceived lack of professionalism, partying, and showboating on the pitch. The protests by fans suggest that they have grown tired of Neymar’s antics and want him to leave the club.
