Neymar at PSG: Brazilian called Leonardo to clarify statements about his possible retirement from football |  NCZD |  FOOTBALL-INTERNATIONAL

A declaration of Neymar related to the future that he projects with the Brazilian team after the 2022 Qatar World Cup was misinterpreted by the board of directors of PSG. The forward assured that will analyze if he has the strength to put on the jacket of the ‘Canarinha’ after the most important event in football, although in France they understood that the crack is willing to hang up the chimps next year.

“I don’t know if I have the mental strength to deal with football more … I think 2022 will be my last World Cup. I will do everything possible to do well, to do everything possible to win with my country, to make my biggest dream come true since I was little. And I hope I can do it “, said the star in a preview of the documentary Neymar Jr., Dynasty of Kings on the DAZN platform.

Faced with the confusing context, Neymar contacted Leonardo, the sports director of Paris Saint Germain. According to information from the L’Equipe newspaper, there was a dialogue between the two characters to clarify: the words only refer to the ‘Verdeamarela’ and it has nothing to do with club activity.

‘Ney’ and ‘Les Parisiens’ talked for months to agree on the details of a contract renewal. Thus, just a few months ago, the club announced that the ’10’ signed until mid-2025. Therefore, in the internal of the institution, it was surprising that the attacker manifested himself regarding leaving the professional activity with only 29 years.

After returning the soul to the body of Leonardo and the leadership of PSG, Neymar hope to improve his numbers in the current season. The forward played seven official matches (five in Ligue 1 and two in the Champions League), but he only has one goal and two assists. Numbers far from what the former Santos usually offers.

The footballer hopes to finish his last commitment to Brazil against Uruguay in the South American Qualifiers. Then he will join the discipline of coach Mauricio Pochettino to resume the campaign with the Gauls, although it is unlikely that he will appear in the duel on Friday 15 against Angers for the local tournament. In any case, the player points to Tuesday 19 against RB Leipzig for the group round of the Champions League.
