Neymar wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain with Kylian Mbappe, nanansem.com can report.
Neymar wants to Mbappe to stay and make things better for the club, since he is willing to extend his contract.
“I want to stay at PSG, and I hope Kylian will stay too. We want PSG to be a great team”Neymar said.
PSG was defeated by Lorient on Sunday. Neymar’s stay in PSG has not been that good and the fans are even telling him to leave the club after he handed in his transfer request in the summer of 2019 and reported late for the pre-season training.
But in an interview with TF1, he looked determined to put the past behind him and excel under new manager Mauricio Pochettino alongside Kylian Mbappe.
“I am very happy today,” he said. “I feel happy. Things have changed a lot, I can’t exactly explain why – if it’s just me, or something else has changed.
“But today, I am feeling good. I have adapted. I feel calmer and I’m very happy here. I want to stay at PSG, and I hope Kylian will stay too. Of course, that is the wish of every PSG supporter.
“We want PSG to be a great team, and I want to continue doing what I’ve done every day in Paris – play football and be happy. That is the most important thing.”
Neymar also vowed to win the champions league under the new manager, despite the dissapointment they caused last season at the champions league final against Bayern Munich.
“It’s something that I didn’t like at all,” he said. “I cried about it, I really wanted to take that cup back to France.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to do it on this occasion, but we will have other opportunities and we are going to do everything we can to get back to the final and win that title.”
Neymar elaborated on his relationship with Mbappe, who he calls his “brother”, and claim they both need to feel at ease in their club to perform at the best of their abilities.
“Me and Kylian are like brothers,” he said. “I’m the big brother. We enjoy playing together a lot. I want to bring out the best in him.
“He’s a golden boy. I call him “golden boy”, because he is really gold. He has a big heart, as a football player everyone knows what he is worth, but he’s incredible outside the pitch as well.
“He is always smiling, joyous, he loves having fun. We are very much alike and we need to be happy to perform at 100 per cent. And yet there are also strong failures, in the recent Champions League final with PSG.”
