Neymar launches broadside at Barcelona directors

Neymar launches broadside

Neymar has launched a stinging attack on the Barcelona board, saying his former club deserve much better.

The Brazil striker recently swapped Barca for Paris St Germain in a record-breaking £200.6million transfer, bringing to an end four trophy-laden years at the Nou Camp.

The 25-year-old admits he enjoyed his stay with the Catalan giants, but has revealed he was not impressed with all aspects of the club.

Speaking after making a sparkling home debut for PSG, Neymar took aim at the Barca hierarchy, saying in quotes reported by the Spanish press: “To be honest it makes me very sad.

“I spent four years there and I was very happy. At the start, I was very happy. I had four beautiful years and I was happy, but with them (the Barca board), no.

“For me at Barcelona there are directors who shouldn’t be there. Barca deserves much more and everybody knows it. I have many friends there, I hope things improve for Barca and they get back to being a team capable of competing with the others.”

Since Neymar quit the Nou Camp, Barca have been thrashed 5-1 on aggregate by bitter rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa before starting their LaLiga campaign with a 2-0 home win over Real Betis on Sunday.

Neymar, meanwhile, has become an instant hit at the Parc des Princes.

The most expensive player in history marked his debut with a goal and an assist in a 3-0 win at Guingamp, and then on Sunday night he treated his new fans to a virtuoso performance, scoring twice and having a hand in three other goals as PSG thrashed Toulouse 6-2 in their first home match of the campaign.
