I Really Wanted To Play My First Game For PSG – Neymar


imagesDespite his inability to feature in PSG’s season opener against Amiens, Neymar was showcased to Paris Saint-Germain supporters at Parc des Princes on Saturday — once the crowd finally stopped chanting his name.

French DeeJay Martin Solveig set the tone for the party mood in the French capital with a prematch treat as fans sat down patiently waiting for a glimpse of the €222 million man.

They finally got their wish just over an hour before kick-off as Neymar followed chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi onto the pitch with fireworks going off as he emerged from the players’ tunnel.

Facing multiple PSG’s Samba-themed yellow shirts, the 25-year-old declared his “disappointment” at being unable to feature against newly promoted Amiens but thanked the fans for the warmest of welcomes.

“This is magical, magnificent, I want to thank the supporters,” Neymar declared via beIN Sports France to the stadium. “I am disappointed to be ineligible today, I really wanted to [play], so it will maybe be next week instead.

“In the dressing room? I am alongside Dani Alves and Thiago Silva, once again. I hope that we are going to have a great season together.”

Neymar then completed a lap of honour and ended by throwing his shirt to the section of Ultras situated at the Auteuil end of Parc des Princes.
