Neymar Jr, PSG’s 222 million euros star, has revealed that he is enjoying life at French club, Paris st Germain, following his dazzling performance in PSG’s 3-0 win over Guingamp, a game he scored a goal and gave an assist, stating that life outside Barcelona isn’t so bad after all.
Neymar completed a shocking 222 million euros move this summer from Barcelona to PSG shattering the previous record held by Paul Pogba, for most expensive footballer on the planet.
Some critics have argued that leaving Barca for Ligue 1 is a step down, but the 25-year-old Brazilain captain is happy with his decision.
“I knew it would be very difficult to leave Barca but I am very happy to be here,” he told Canal+.
“People think that you die after leaving Barca, but no, it’s the opposite. I’m more alive than ever, I play, I’m very happy. The country, the city and the team change, but football is the same.”
“It’s always important to score, and I hope to score more, but I want to help the team win even more, first and foremost,” he told his new club’s website.
“We played well, scored goals and we’re satisfied with the game. We linked up well on the pitch, we’re going to continue getting to know each other. There are quality players, it’s a great team.
“I knew (Cavani) was a top, top player and that we would have an understanding. We are continuing to get to know each other, but it’s easy to play with him and Angel (Di Maria).
“We’re going to keep getting better.”
