After the particularly worrying defeat (1-3) of Paris Saint-Germain on the lawn of AS Monaco on Saturday evening during the 23rd day of Ligue 1, Luis Campos and Neymar obviously had a very animated discussion.
Hardly beaten in the Principality three days after the elimination in the Cup against Olympique de Marseille, the champions of France can no longer deny the evidence.

Only Gianluigi Donnarumma, Presnel Kimpembe and Warren Zaire-Emery made the effort to come to grips with the situation.

The Team ensures this Sunday that the two men had a very tense discussion in Portuguese. The Parisian captain, Marquinhos, joined the conversation to try to bring back some serenity.
An evening of clashes for Neymar
Earlier in the evening, Neymar had already shown signs of annoyance. Visibly very annoyed by the turn of events at the Louis II stadium, the Parisian star did not hesitate to volley Vitinha in the middle of the match. On a sequence of play, the Brazilian seriously cropped the Portuguese midfielder, whom he blamed for not giving him the ball. During this match, the Parisian striker also gave Hugo Ekitike a soap that he found too discreet. Atmosphere…
