Neymar's stunning overhead kick in added time secures win for PSG

Neymar's stunning overhead kick in added time secures win for PSG

Neymar reportedly broke down in tears when he learned his move from Paris Saint-Germain to Barcelona fell through, according to El Chiringuito. "I had a lot of serious injuries and I missed out on lots of games".

The PSG Ultras were relentless in their pursuit of their No. 10, booing, jeering and whistling Neymar each time he touched the ball and Tuchel was forced to address the situation after the match as well. From that point on, all hell broke loose.

French supporters booed Neymar as he was announced on the stadium's loudspeaker before the game, and chanted that he was a "son of a b**ch". "But I'm still a PSG player and my intention is to be happy on the pitch".

"I understand the fans and I know it was hard for them", Neymar told reporters.

It was well known that Neymar wanted to leave PSG for a return to LaLiga champions FC Barcelona in the recent transfer window, which closed two weeks ago.

Neymar Jr. has reaffirmed his commitment to Paris Saint-Germain following his match-winning intervention against RC Strasbourg Alsace at the Parc des Princes on Saturday evening. I have also undoubtedly here had the best statistics of my career. This time, I will be playing each match as if we were away from home.

"I don't need the fans to support me".

Neymar also noted that he doesn't want to dwell on the matter and he is ready to move on.

He made it known to the PSG hierarchy that he wanted the leave the club, which didn't go down too well with the PSG fans. I said it and I repeated it.

"No, I do not have a particular message for them". I will not go into details about it.

"It is time to turn the page".

His determined but unsuccessful push to return to Barcelona this summer, which involved him even offering to pay 20m euros of his own money to force it through, had been tough enough to stomach.

There was also some rumors in the past that Neymar could join his fellow soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus.

It's clearly waring thin on Neymar and not doing PSG's hopes of keeping him at the club for the long-term any good.
