Ex-Barca President Slams Neymar
Former FC Barcelona President Slams Neymar
A former FC Barcelona president has criticised Paris Saint-Germain's new signing Neymar for the manner in which he went about leaving the Catalan giants.
The French club officially announced the signing on Thursday evening, confirming a move that seemed inevitable for weeks.
Ex-Blaugrana president Joan Gaspart has likened the player's exit to that of Luis Figo's in 2000, insisting that he has seen better players leave the Camp Nou with less fuss.
"I've seen similar situations but Neymar is in the same boat as Figo, who was alone but now has Neymar for company," he told Cadena SER.
"I've seen great players like (Diego) Maradona and Ronaldo (de Lima), who were better than Neymar, also leave Barca because other clubs paid their clauses.
“But they went with dignity, without making so much fuss. I've not liked his (Neymar's) attitude with the club, with the supporters and with his teammates."
Neymar played 186 games for Barca, scoring 105 goals and assisting a further 80 strikes.
