At the press conference held this afternoon, Neymar said: ‘The club has a very similar ambition to mine, I want a bigger challenge. My heart made this decision, that is why I am in front of you today to help this team.‘Being a star did not impact my decision, it is down to me wanting to find a new challenge. I am looking for something new. This is what PSG want, and they deserve it.
‘I leave a lot of very good friends behind, but that’s football. You make friends wherever you go, and that’s the main thing. It was the right time to leave and look for something different. Being the most expensive player is not a burden, I am happy. ‘I spoke with Brazilian players here at PSG, and they were happy for me to be here. I feel like I am at home already.
‘Two days ago I informed the coach, he was the first to know, I respect the club and the coach. I am very happy with my decision, I am excited.’
Hundreds of fans of the football club, are presently in a long queue in Champs Elysees, Paris, to purchase a replica of Neymar’s No.10 jersey.
