La flamante estrella brasileña del París Saint-Germain (PSG) , Neymar Jr, lanzó un duro ataque contra la dirección de su ex equipo de fútbol Barcelona, luego de afirmar que el cuadro “se merece mucho más”.

Los que dirigen el club catalán “no son la gente que debería estar allí”, declaró Neymar a la prensa tras anotar dos veces en casa, contribuyendo a la victoria por goleada 6-2 del PSG contra Toulouse.

“La verdad, me ponen muy triste”, dijo sobre el Barcelona la estrella que costó al club parisino la suma récord de 261 millones de dólares. “Pasé cuatro años allí y fui muy feliz. Al principio, fui muy feliz. Pasé cuatro hermosos años y me fui feliz, pero con ellos (la dirección del Barcelona), no”, dijo.

Agregó: “Para mí, no son la gente que debería estar dirigiendo al Barça. El Barcelona se merece mucho más y todo el mundo lo sabe. Espero que las cosas mejoren para el Barcelona y que vuelva a ser un equipo capaz de rivalizar con los demás”.

El club catalán ha sido criticado estos últimos días por la contratación por 40 millones de euros del mediocampista brasileño Paulinho, que jugaba desde hace dos años en el equipo chino Guangzhou Evergrande.


Paris (AFP) – Paris Saint-Germain’s world record signing Neymar launched a scathing attack on his former club’s directors, saying “Barca deserve much better”.

The people in charge at the Catalan giants “are not the people who should be there, for the direction of Barca,” Neymar told reporters after scoring twice on his home debut as PSG thumped Toulouse 6-2 in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

“I want to speak the truth, I’m very sad with them,” said the Brazilian star who cost the Paris club a world record 222 million euros ($261 million) to prise from Barcelona.

“I spent four years there and I was very happy. At the start, I was happy. I spent four beautiful years there and I parted happy. But with them (the club’s directors), no.

“For me, they are not the people who should be there, for the direction of Barca,” said Neymar.

“Barca deserve much better and the whole world knows it.”

Despite securing the massive fee for Neymar, Barcelona are struggling to replace him before the transfer window closes.

The club have had bids in excess of 100 million euros for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele turned down.

And the club have been criticised for splashing out 40 million euros ($47 million) for Brazil midfielder Paulinho, who has spent two years at Chinese Super League champions Guangzhou Evergrande.

But Neymar said he could not comment on what the club were doing before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

“I cannot speak now I am in another team. I don’t know what’s going on there, but I see my old teammates sad, and it’s that which makes me sad because I have a lot of friends there,” he said.

“I hope that things will improve for Barca and that they will become a team that can rival others.”

However, former Tottenham flop Paulinho’s arrival has not been warmly received by Barca fanatical supporters at the Camp Nou.

Over 80 percent of fans urged the club not to pay more than 20 million euros for Paulinho in a survey conducted by Barcelona sports daily Mundo Deportivo.
