With no defeat in the first fourteen days of Ligue 1 last season, Paris Saint-Germain fell to the second round of this year's 2019/2020 season. Beaten on Rehn's lawn (2-1), the capital's club did not show a very attractive face. Physical and tactical deficiencies plus Neymar's absence. And if it is difficult to say that this absence is measured at the meeting, especially out of respect for Rehn's delivery, it is still that Paris misses its best element until its future is resolved.
A statement that should not be overlooked at a time when the title of champion of France always drills. And if many supporters in the Ile-de-France region no longer want to see the international gold medal in the Parisian jersey, Thiago Silva made the point to remind the mixed zone that his compatriot remains a key element. "It's hard to say if Neymar misses. These are players that are different from everyone else. Even on one leg, Neymar can do incredible things like Messi and Cristiano. We certainly miss it. He is still a PS player, I hope he can stay with us because he is an amazing man and a necessity ».
Thiago Silva praises Neymar
Wary of discussing his teammate's future, PSG's captain now prays that the situation is not moving on the market. As a reminder, FC Barcelona loaned Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich while the latter was considered an asset in the Neymar negotiations. The trend Thiago Silva hopes to see confirmed. In any case, it is the feeling he expressed to the media.
"I can't answer, it's up to him to ask. Neymar is a key player on this team. But we must not talk about its future. It is my feeling that he will stay with us. (…) We try to talk a little bit, but it's hard to get into specific things. It's between him and the club. We have to wait until the end. Frankly, Neymar is a key player on this team. I hope he stays, we'll be stronger with him. " The message has passed.
