Barca Star Explains His Pre-Season Fight With Neymar

FC Barcelona Star Explains His Pre-Season Fight With Neymar

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 13, 2017 11:27 AM @KurtLaduma

Superstar Neymar was in a training ground bust-up with an FC Barcelona player before his move to Paris Saint-Germain in August, and the Catalan club man has now opened up about the incident with the Brazilian.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see some images of the bust-up between Neymar and Nelson Semedo earlier this year.

Nelson Semedo, who joined the Blaugrana in July, was involved in a spat with Neymar during their pre-season tour of the United States – the Portuguese had just joined the club at the time of the event, while the Brazilian was, unknown to most, on his way out.

Semedo has now spoken about the incident, and insisted that although they had an obvious disagreement, he understood that Neymar was going through a difficult time.

"It didn't set me back, it was a normal situation in training. However, it had a repercussion beyond the normal level," he said, according to Sport.

"Personally, it didn't affect me because I had the support of the team and my friends, but it obviously influenced me.

"I just arrived and one of the most important players in the team got in a fight with me. It annoyed me at the time but I also understood he was in a difficult moment, he wanted to leave.

"I had no idea that Neymar would go, but the rest of the dressing room expected it. I didn't imagine in that time that he would leave Barcelona for PSG.

"It surprised me, like the rest of the fans who were shocked. He was an important player for the team and very loved."
