The penaltygate affair, Neymar’s likes, the Brazilian’s recent (non-)statements about his teammate etc. Since the start of the season, there has been talk of a very cold relationship between the two men, who do not get along at all off the field. In its edition of the day, the mediaCrew reveals the underside of the conflicting relationship between the two men, with an intervention by Marquinhos and Ramos to ease tensions the day after the penaltygate (August 13 against Montpellier).
Then comes this match against Juventus at the beginning of September, where Neymar is also annoyed by certain choices of the Bondynois on the ground. And this time it was Messi who had to mediate. The star of Canarinha would be particularly tired of the behavior of the former Monegasque, whom he would consider too arrogant. But at the same time, the newspaper reveals that Neymar and Mbappé will do everything to ensure that their individual problems do not affect the collective.
The egos, in the closet
The two stars want to calm things down, and do not want their business to crystallize the attention of the media or harm the team. They do not want to be talked about for these reasons, knowing that they are particularly followed and being aware that any gesture or statement will be scrutinized very closely by everyone. L’Crew adds that the famous media release of Mbappé on his role at PSG during the truce was not at all a criticism aimed at his teammate.
Just as Neymar’s refusal to speak about Mbappé concealed no bad intentions or subliminal message against his club partner. He precisely wished to avoid any remarks possibly misinterpreted or misinterpreted and therefore avoid a new potential controversy. The two therefore want to bury the hatchet, at least for the next few months, for the good of PSG. Good news for their club and for Christophe Galtier, among others…
