Neymar hasn’t been included in the last few matches at Paris Saint-Germain and has said that it wasn’t his choice, rather it was what the club wanted.
And now all he wants to do is get up from the sidelines and on the pitch.
“It was not my choice not to play the last matches. I wanted to play, I felt good,” Neymar said post-match.
“The club was afraid and it is I who suffer from it.”
“I think we still had possession of the ball in the first half but we were not very intense and active in our game. We missed a lot of balls,” he told RMC Sport.
“They tried to counter the mistakes we made and that’s where they hurt. We conceded two goals on small details that made the difference with a striker [Haaland] who really has a sense of goal; maybe he is not too much in the match but the ball arrives and he puts it in. But still we managed to score a goal, it’s important for the return match.
“By the return match we will work well for all the players are in top form and we can make a very big match. It will take a mentality of winners. They have the score and we have to make a good victory at home, be aggressive, solid behind because we know that it is important not to take a goal at home.
“These are the things that are clear: more intensity, more aggressiveness in our counter-pressing because it was lacking today. It’s the little details that make the difference and it is certain that we will do better because otherwise we will not succeed.”
