Neymar has explained off his fractured relationship with Paris Saint-Germain’s fans, insisting “it is like with women, sometimes you argue and spend some time without talking”.
PSG superstar Neymar has enjoyed a stunning return to the team since his failed return to Barcelona, scoring three goals in four matches.
Neymar’s desire to re-join Barca sparked a rift with PSG’s fans, who insulted and displayed banners during the Brazilian’s comeback against Strasbourg on September 14.
But Neymar has not been affected, scoring the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 Ligue 1 victory at Bordeaux and he dismissed the rocky relationship with PSG’s supporters.
“It is like with women. Sometimes you argue and spend some time without talking,” Neymar told reporters post-match.
“However, with love and affection, you go back to normal. I am here to help PSG and I will give my life on the pitch.”
Neymar added to beIN SPORTS: “I’m very happy! I love helping the team, whether it be goals or assists! I’m here for that, and I have every intention of doing that.
“I’m happy when I make the breakthrough in such tight and difficult games. Kylian Mbappe? He returned with his smile, his good mood…and his football!”
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe combined for the 70th-minute winner as PSG bounced back from their shock 2-0 defeat at home to Reims on Wednesday.
“We won this evening by getting back our good feelings in our understanding with each other, linking up, and with quick attacks! It augurs well,” Mbappe said.
“My absence? It was long, difficult too. When the team loses, you want to come back as soon as possible, but you can’t be hasty. It wasn’t easy, but it’s over!
