Barca Chief Slams Neymar For Exit Behaviour

FC Barcelona vice president Jordi Mestre has publicly slammed Brazilian superstar Neymar for the way he forced his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar: Why I Respect Ronaldo

Speaking about the 26-year-old's exit from the Camp Nou in August recently, Mestre seemed to still have a sour taste in his mouth regarding the way things unfolded.

Barca's vice president has now  insisted that the way Neymar decided to go about leaving the Catalan giants is what disappointed him the most about the situation.  

"What hurt me the most was the way it happened," Mestre told Diario Sport.

"We were all on tour talking with him and his father, and they were not transparent.

"If he came to us and said, I want to go, like Cesc (Fabregas), Pedro (Rodriguez), Alexis (Sanchez) and (Javier) Mascherano, we would have reached an agreement. What you can't do is rock the boat. He played cat and mouse with us. He told us nothing.

"If he had done, PSG would have been able to buy him for less money and it would have cost us less to sign (replacements), too.

"What Neymar's behaviour created was the market inflation. We would have saved a lot of money and a lot of media noise."

Messi: Why It's Difficult For Ronaldo And I To Be Friends

Neymar has played 26 games for PSG since his arrival in France, scoring 27 goals and assisting a further 16 strikes.
