Neymar is being criticised after a bad week for PSG. Knocked out of the Champions League and with their Ligue 1 throne at risk, they are blasting the Brazilian.
They began to arrive after he sealed his contract renewal with PSG and avoided a new Barca soap opera. They drew 1-1 at Rennes on Sunday.
“Lazy between the lines, without dynamism,” criticised L’Equipe of the forward. “Neymar enjoyed himself alone, forgetting his team-mates. His goal, the eighth in 16 Ligue 1 games, did not hide his clearly insufficient production.”
Le Parisien also were unhappy with him, saying he played ‘in socks’. RMC Sport were also critical.
