Neymar: PSG was afraid, I suffered from this
Neymar reveals that Paris Saint-Germain has been afraid of activating him in recent weeks. Despite the Brazilian striker wanting to return to the playing field after his injury.
The 28-year-old, Neymar was not part of Paris Saint-Germain’s team in their last three Ligue 1 matches due to an injury. He was also in doubt for Tuesday’s match against Dortmund in Germany for 1/8 of the Champions League final.
However, Neymar starts in the first minute of the match against Dortmund and scores in the second half. But fails to help his team avoid a 2-1 defeat.
Having been off the pitch recovering, the Brazilian has indicated that he has been ready to play for some time. But Paris Saint-Germain prefers not to risk him.
“It was not my choice not to play in the last games. I wanted to play, I felt good. The club was scared and I suffered from it, ” says Neymar.
This season, like the past, has been plagued by multiple injuries to Neymar, who suffered a muscle injury in October and missed six more games.
The Brazilian’s return to form has come on time as PSG now have to reverse the score in the returning match against Dortmund in the Parc des Princes, to avoid a knockout at this stage for the third year in a row.
