Neymar Jr’s adventure with PSG has not been a long calm river. Recruited from FC Barcelona in the summer of 2017 for €222m, a record for a transfer, the Brazilian genius has a tumultuous relationship with PSG supporters. Between his desires to leave and his name whistled regularly at the start of the 2019 season and his failure to come in front of the supporters at the end of each match, the story is complicated.
Daniel Riolo is famous for not having his tongue in his pocket. He proved it again when it came to discussing the Neymar case., and all the controversies that have punctuated his career at PSG since 2017.
“He is one of the best customers at Le Bourget”
Invited by Zack Nani in his show broadcast on Twitch, Freewheeling Zack, Daniel Riolo evokes the Neymar case and in particular his false start in 2019: “ The guy plays at Barça, you offer him an astronomical transfer, the guy comes and you understand that he comes reluctantly since two years later he tells you “I can’t take it anymore, I want to go back there -down”. For those who don’t know, one of Le Bourget airport’s best customers was Neymar, who returned to Barcelona three times a week, and still does today. »

“Your club, I don’t care, I don’t want to be there”
Daniel Riolo also recalls the attempts of the UPC to try to reconnect: And he still doesn’t speak a word of French, that’s how much he wants to be there! The guy clearly says “I want to get out” all summer long, but it basically means “I don’t care about your club, I don’t want to be there”. How can fans accept that? (…) Many times the CUP has taken the first step by saying that it wants to renew the dialogue. The other has always pissed them off! »
