The relationship between Neymar and Mbappé is a big talk at PSG. The quarrel between the two men dates from several months ago, and causes great resentment.
Arrived at Paris SG as a future winner of the Ballon d’Or in 2017, Neymar is currently off the list of 30 nominated for the supreme individual award in 2022. Suffice to say that the Brazilian’s demotion is impossible to discern, and it is not his first three good games this season that will make everything forget. At PSG, number 10 has not kept his promises and has been talked about more off the field than on the green rectangle. Last season was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many, with yet another injury, attributed in part to his lifestyle hardly reconcilable with his contract, a disaster return to finally cross like a ghost the double confrontation against Real Madrid. In the end, a new elimination and supporters who can no longer take their playmaker.

This was also the case for the Emir of Qatar, and also for Kylian Mbappé. Because according to the revelations of Don Balon, it was at this time of the season that the problem became deeper between the Brazilian and the Frenchman. Indeed, after the elimination in incredible conditions at Santiago-Bernabeu, PSG supporters set fire to Mauricio Pochettino, Neymar and even Lionel Messi. The Brazilian, for example, was whistled every time he touched the ball during the match against Bordeaux in March 2022. Only Mbappé, admittedly untenable in the two games against Real and scorer in each of the confrontations, had been spared by local fans.
Whistles that don’t pass
The French striker could have taken advantage of this state of grace to remind us that we do not whistle our own players, especially the stars of the team who are aware of not having been on top at the crucial moment. But Kylian Mbappé did not do it and according to the Spanish publication, Neymar clearly blames him for not having defended him publicly. His teammate’s silence was seen as a way of approving criticism of Neymar and Messi, and the Brazilian has been seeing red ever since. At the end of last season, he had already regained a certain level of play, but this summer, he fueled at the start of the season and took advantage of his return to form to provoke Mbappé with strong messages relayed on social networks.
The Park overthrown by Neymar?
If it is often explained that Neymar did not appreciate seeing that his departure had been requested from PSG, including by the French world champion, the estrangement has therefore been underlying for even longer. All these beautiful people will therefore have to find common ground, because the former Santos prodigy knows that with his 5 goals and 3 assists in just three games this season, he has put some supporters back in his pocket. If this irritates Daniel Riolo to the highest point, for whom Parisian fans really have a short memory, it ultimately demonstrates that Neymar’s spirit of revenge also allows him to be over-motivated at the idea of having the last word in his war of nerves with Kylian Mbappé.
