Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery hailed recent signing Neymar as “one of the best” players in the world and promised to “help him to become the best” at Parc des Princes.
“Neymar is a great player, one of the best in the world,” Emery told journalists. “However, he is normal with the others in the dressing room and when he works.
“All of the other players are great and they are happy that a player like Neymar is at PSG. That is something we all wanted.”
“We want to develop along with Neymar and to help him to become the best player in the world,” said the Basque tactician. “We will work towards that for him and he will work towards that for us. Together, we will become an even greater team.
“Neymar adds something extra. He gives us pace, he links up well, his final pass and an ability to play at speed. He also gives us greater qualities, individual and collective, in attack and the creation of opportunities.
“In his first match [a 3-0 win away at EA Guingamp last week], Neymar responded by giving us what we wanted from him. Tactically, he is capable of doing a lot of things in attack but also in defence over 90 minutes. He is capable of everything and is in beautiful physical condition.”
“Neymar is one more player in this squad,” the former Sevilla boss said. “We want to take advantage of having him in this team and possessing his quality. He gives a lot to the side individually but what counts for me is the whole squad.
“Neymar, Dani and Yuri are three very important signings. It is true that Dani has the experience and mentality of a winner. He has won a lot in the game, he is still a top player and we want him to continue to create a great team spirit among his teammates in order to continue to grow collectively.
“If that happens, we are closer to a mentality that will enable us to win everything.”
