World most expensive football player, Neymar, has come out to says he does not worth the £200m Paris Sanit-Germain paid to land him at the Parc des Princes last summer.
Prior to his arrival in the summer of 2017, the Ligue 1 oufit activated the release clause of the Brazilian attacker in his contract with Barcelona to make him the most expensive player in Europe.
When asked about the price PSG paid to sign him, Neymar said to Spox via Sky Sports: “I’m not proud of the transfer fee, nor of the fact I’m the most expensive player ever.
“That’s just money and nothing else. I cannot help it. Personally, I would have paid less for myself.
Despite sustaining an injury back in January, the 26-year-old was named PSG’s player of the Year, scoring 28 goals in 30 matches for the French Champions before his injury.
“I’m proud that I’ve achieved my childhood goal. That was, and is, most important to me.
“As a player, you always have to show who you are and assert yourself. Just referring to the transfer fee does not help you and says nothing about how good you really are.”
However, with all eyes on the Brazilian attacker since his arrival at France, Neymar has helped the Ligue 1 giants to lift the French title.
Plying his trade in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Neymar was unable to help his country, Brazil secure their first victory in the tournament sharing points with Switzerland in a 1-1 draw.
Also in the latest news concerning Neymar, the Brazilian has been seen limping out during a post-match training session.
But all has been cleared by Brazil media officer, Vinicius Rodrigues, who claimed it was a minor and not a cause for concern as he will resume his normal training tomorrow.
“Neymar felt some pain in his right ankle, so that’s the reason he left training. Because of the number of fouls he suffered in the last match his ankle is a little painful, but he will train normally tomorrow,” Rodrigues said.
“He’s not been medically examined. He felt some pain and went to the physiotherapy, and tomorrow he will train normally.
“It’s normal for a football player to feel some pain, especially Neymar with the number of fouls that he’s suffered in the last game. Because of the number of fouls that he suffered in the last match he’s felt some pain in his ankle, and that’s why he’s not training today.
“The intention was not for him to train fully today because it’s a post-match training, an easy training for the first 11.”
