Neymar: One Reason I Ditched FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 11, 2017 11:59 AM @KeeganKruger

Brazilian superstar Neymar has highlighted one reason why he left FC Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe Reveals What He Told Barca's Record Signing

The 25-year-old's £198 million (R3.45 billion) move from the Camp Nou to the Ligue 1 giants smashed the world transfer record last month.

Speaking ahead of his club's UEFA Champions League tie against Scottish side Celtic on Tuesday night, Neymar discussed his team's chances in the European competition this season.

"One of my biggest reasons for joining PSG was to help the club write history," Neymar said, as quoted by The Sun.

"The Champions League is not the only trophy we want to win – but it is a very important trophy.

"The aim this season is to try and win it – that is the level the club are now at. I do believe we are capable of winning the tournament.

"Not only do we have the quality but we have the experience – the players who know what it takes to win the Champions League.

"I have won the tournament, Dani Alves has won it three times, Thiago Motta has won it at Barcelona and Inter, Angel Di Maria has won it with Real Madrid. We not only have quality but real experience."

'I Turned Down Man City, Not Guardiola!'

Les Parisiens were drawn alongside Bayern Munich, Anderlecht and Celtic in Group B.

Do you think PSG have the quality to go out and win the European competition this season? Have your say in the comments section below.

We don't really care why Neymar left Barca...he has left, FC Barcelona moves on, and Neymar must forget about Barcelona and focus on PSG, we have forgotten about him, he's not bigger than FC Barca, in life we drive looking forward and ahead, not looking at the rearview mirror...Neymar is history to us, we now talk of Messi, Rakitic, Dembele, and even Paulinho etc, those guys are our only concern at this moment.

Champions league is not pap&vleis you have to sweat real hard,I agree with him that they do have real quality players with experience I only see them reaching semi-final or even final but winning it is something else.
