PSG currently has Neymar as a gala, the Brazilian star is still at the top of his game on Sunday against Lorient. He even to the point of once again being considered one of the best, if not the best footballer in the world.
Matches and victories follow one another for the paris st germain who should face the World Cup break with a comfortable lead in the Ligue 1 standings. In this first half of the season, Christophe Galtier has been able to count on a gala from Neymar, as the Brazilian star returned this summer in resplendent physical condition, which changed from previous seasons. And it’s worth it, because the former Barcelona player had never been so strong, the annoying and complaining Neymar of years past had given way to a ney, capable of shaking encounters on his own. His goal on Sunday against Lorient shows what the Brazilian player is worth when he is at 100% of his chances.

Neymar on his way to the 2023 Ballon d’Or
– Neymar Jr (@neymarjr) November 4, 2022
On Europe 1 Sport, Marc Libbra admitted that he loved what he saw of Neymar this season and that the latter was probably stung by rumors about him being sold by Paris Saint-Germain at the request of Kylian Mbappé. ” I think Neymar is exceptional at this level when he is physically and mentally capable of making an effort. Against Lorient, in PSG’s first goal, it was he who made the effort to put pressure on the goalkeeper. I think the summer episode with Kylian Mbappé that would have asked him to leave, I think he has it in his throat and says to himself: “I’m going to show Mbappé who I am.” Let’s not forget that when he signed for Paris in 2017 it was to stop being in the shadow of Lionel Messi and become the best player in the world. The problem for him is that there was at the same time the outburst of Kylian Mbappé that stole the show. There, he dots the i’s again and shows what he really is. We must maintain this state of mind because Paris has someone exceptional in Neymar. Now, we will judge him with the World Cup, if he stays the course and has a good season, he will be among the top three players in the world. “Explains, about Europe 1, the former OM striker.
In the wake of PSG’s victory in Lorient, Christophe Galtier was not mistaken, the coach of the French champions believed that ” he is perhaps the best Neymar we have seen at Paris SG at the moment. If he has never directly mentioned his situation with Kylian Mbappé, the Brazilian star believes that what we have seen this season reflects the reality of his game and that he is not throwing himself into a competition of who will be the strongest in Paris: I don’t like to keep saying that I’m better than the other. I like to continue. Fight every game, every day, that’s what I want to do this season. If I started well now, I want to improve much more, both in goals, assists and football. Few people know what happens in my daily life, the efforts that I have always made in my career. »
