Neymar: Me and Messi lived through hell at PSG

Neymar has fired shots at former club Paris Saint-Germain, claiming he was subject to unfair abuse from the club’s supporters.

In an interview with Brazilian publication O Globo, the 31-year-old spoke about the mixed feelings he had when his former PSG and Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi won last year’s World Cup with Argentina.

I was very happy for the year [Messi] had, but at the same time very sad, because he lived both sides of the coin,” said Neymar, who ended his six-year stay with PSG when he joined Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal in the summer.

"He went to heaven with the Argentina team, won everything in recent years, and with Paris he lived hell, we lived through hell, both he and I."

Neymar and Messi came under fire from sections of the PSG fanbase after failing to win the Champions League with the club. Both players were booed towards the end of their time in Paris.

“We get upset, because we’re not there for nothing, we’re there to do our best, [to] be champions, try to make history,” said the Brazilian. “That’s why we started playing together again, we came together there so we could make history. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it.”
