Wenger: Neymar is No Longer playing With the Best
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has expressed his shock at Neymar’s stunning move to PSG, saying the forward is no longer with the best.
Paris Saint-Germain shocked the footballing word when they triggered Neymar’s release clause by acquiring him for a world record fee of €222 million.
The Sensational Brazil forward has been joined by teenage star Mbappe and plays alongside Uruguay’s Cavani. However, Wenger does not understand why he would leave Messi and Suarez in the prime of his career.
“Neymar never expressed exactly in his statement the reasons of his move, because there is always a huge desire for the players to play with the best players,” he said.
“He decided to go the other way, so that is… for financial reasons, or for reasons that he thinks Paris Saint-Germain is tomorrow’s club and will take over from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
“Or maybe for individual reasons, such as maybe he wants to become the player that the team turns around, and to be acknowledged as the best player in the world.”
