'Neymar Left Barca Because Of Messi'

'Neymar Left FC Barcelona Because Of Lionel Messi'

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 22, 2017 06:30 PM @KeeganKruger

A former FC Barcelona player believes that Brazil international Neymar left the Blaugrana to get out of Lionel Messi’s shadow.

Neymar & Cavani In Heated Penalty Row

The 25-year-old Brazilian shocked the world when he decided to move to Paris Saint-Germain for a transfer record fee of €222 million (R3.4 billion) back in August.

France international Jeremy Mathieu, who left the club a month before Neymar did, feels that his former teammate wanted to start competing for Ballon d’Or titles and couldn’t achieve that while Messi was playing alongside him.

"At no moment did people think he was going to leave Barca," he told EFE. "But that's football, it's like that... it's his decision.

"My opinion is that he left Barca because he was behind Leo. I think he wants to win the Ballon d'Or and at the moment he's happy in Paris because he's scoring goals."

English Star To Break Neymar's World Record Transfer?

The former Santos star has made six appearances for his Ligue 1 side, scoring five goals and assisting in a further five more.

Do you think Neymar will go on and win a Ballon d’Or while playing for PSG? Have your say in the comments section below.

Neymar is wrong to fight. When Zlatan was at PSG Cavani never fought because he new his time Wil come. So why is Neymar fighting.

If messi leave barca the motive is proving himself to the world not growth where as Cr7 his motive was to play for a big team not prove himself so Messi is miles ahead of Cr7 he had a dream,But to Messi it looks like obligation not dream Remember messi is from Argentina his football talent brought him to Europe in to the biggest club at the age of 13yr + growth hormone cyndrome that is odd if u think correct now hayenas r sick and tired of his dominance in pain they use a devils classic trick against Jesus as well as supposupport from greedy English holigans to get him out of Cataloniya

Thats very selfish of Neymar to do that but one think he must know for sure is that he'll only win the Ballon D'or once Messi has retired

Messi at his own....,Neymar found Messi at his best and left him at his best. Neymar himself knws vividly that he is far apart from Messi as it comes to football. Messi played 5 La Liga games scoring 9 goals while Neymar played 6 Ligue 1 games netted 5 times.....he musn't compare himself with Messi.

That's being selfish of Neymar, he was not thinking of the team but his own success. You cannot be a team player if you want to olay for your own glory instead of being a part of a winning team and becoming part of a history that the team will create!
