PSG: The MLS boss does not want Neymar at the end of his career


Neymar is not welcome in Major League Soccer (MLS). In any case not at the end of his career. While the Brazilian recently raised the possibility of playing in the North American championship, the MLS boss closed the door to the PSG player if it is to come on pre-retirement.

Neymar seemed to have planned the continuation (and end?) of his career. Under contract with the club of the capital until 2025, he can well imagine returning to Santos in Brazil or crossing the Atlantic to go to the United States and discover the MLS. “I really want to play in the United States, at least one season”, recently confided the 30-year-old player during a live broadcast organized on Twitch by Alexandre Gaules, in the company of his compatriot Ronaldo. “It’s a short championship. You have three or four months of vacation. I could play there for many years”, he added, triggering the hilarity of the speakers.

But his remarks did not make everyone laugh. And even less Don Garber, who responded firmly to the former Barcelona. “We don’t need to bring in a great player at the end of his career because he has decided to come and retire in MLS. If players don’t come here to play and make a meaningful contribution to their teams, if they’re not there to respect the league and their fans, we don’t want them in MLS. » MLS in remarks reported by ESPN.

“We want players who come here because they choose our league. I am proud to bring in players 30 years of age or younger,” said Don Garber, who took the example of Swiss Xherdan Shaqiri, a new recruit from Chicago Fire. Neymar, who celebrated his 30th birthday on February 5, therefore knows what to expect.
