PSG: An explanation at the top is planned between Neymar and Mbappé
The season has just started and a controversy is already raging, since there would be water in the gas between two of the three big stars of Paris Saint-Germain. Kylian Mbappé and Neymar would not really get along on and off the pitch, with the Frenchman’s new role in particular creating some problems.
The three wins in three games are synonymous with a good start to the season, even for a club like the PSG. Because if the results are appreciated, it is above all the way that is retained, with a pleasant and well-oiled game set up by Christophe Galtier. A game that notably highlighted two men with Lionel Messi and Neymar, who between them have scored 8 of the 14 goals in the PSG at the start of the season. The Brazilian, who is coming out of a particularly complicated season and who has been much criticized, seems in particular much more concerned and his defensive folds are perhaps a detail, but symbolize the change which operates in his mind. It does not, in fact, make us forget that several sources close to the PSG, have mentioned in recent months the desire of the new management to get rid of Neymar, who finally seems to want to make himself indispensable.
Mbappé’s comeback didn’t go so well
If this new Neymar seems to go well with Lionel Messi, it totally encroaches on the new role occupied by Kylian Mbappe, undisputed new boss of the PSG since its extension last May. Even quite recently, several media assured that the French would have demanded the departure of his Brazilian teammate at the end of last season, considering that there would not be enough room in the PSG for both. Some in Spain like Francesc Aguilar went further, evoking a clear hatred between Mbappe and Neymar.
A new role not really accepted by Neymar?
If we only look at the meeting against Montpellier, we cannot really blame the Spanish journalist, since Kylian Mbappe clearly seemed annoyed by his lack of success and Neymar’s ever-increasing influence in the game of the PSG. It didn’t get any better after the match, as the Brazilian liked several quite controversial messages on social networks talking about the penalty shootout that Mbappe took him…and ultimately missed. The Team explains that the player’s entourage would not like to talk too much about this subject, recognizing however that the new role of Mbappe within the PSG is not really accepted.
“We are going to discuss with the players but for us, it is not a subject”
But what does the 2018 World Champion think? Contacted by The Teama source at Paris Saint-Germain explained that a meeting should take place soon, to avoid that the situation around Neymar and of Kylian Mbappé does not escalate. » We will discuss with the players but for us it is not a subject ” we explain within the club of the capital. « It’s better to see competitors who are hungry like that, rather than players who lose matches and don’t care about it « . The daily, however, evokes a fairly firm position of the French, who would be convinced that it is above all Neymar and the leaders of PSG who should solve this problem.
