The start of the year is not going too smoothly at PSG. Despite the 2-0 victory over Angers, the performance of the team has not filled fans with confidence. Moreover, the last defeat against Lens is still seen as an aberration.
Neymar, who played the full game after overcoming some discomfort, could not shine as he has been doing during the rest of the season. The Brazilian has been one of PSG‘s best players, with 11 goals and 10 assists in 16 games.
Neymar‘s lackluster performance against Angers generated all sorts of comments, especially critical was a French journalist from RMC Sport, namely Daniel Riolo.
« It’s ridiculous, the image he gives! Neymar is constantly rolling around on the ground, as soon as you touch him, he falls to the ground. It’s bad, » Riolo declared.
Although Leo Messi scored, he was not spared from Riolo’s criticism either.
« Messi is not having a good game, but well, now he’s on everyone’s side for life, so we can’t say anything more about him, » he added.
« Even the free kicks on Neymar’s side, he’s the one who’s going to take them. It’s a free kick for Neymar, it’s on his side, but Neymar has no right to do anything anymore. There is nothing coherent. »
PSG, in general terms, were also analyzed by this journalist who was not happy with the performance from the team as a collective unit.
« Do you want to start by talking about this mediocre game? Yes, they’re champions in the autumn, but OK. We saw weakness in midfield again. »
