According to NewsBreak, this summer, Messi turned down the Saudi Pro League in favor of a free agent deal with Inter Miami in Major League Soccer, while Neymar signed with Al-Hilal for almost $97 million. The 31-year-old admitted to being thrilled for Messi’s triumph at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Qatar but saddened by their shared adversity in Paris in an interview with Globo’s Esporte Espetacular.

While playing together again for PSG, Lionel Messi and Neymar were unable to repeat their 2015 UEFA Champions League victory with Barcelona. The Brazilian player was chased out of the club by fans who were hostile towards them, while the Argentina star admitted to having difficulties while playing for the French champs.

In a scathing account of his time at Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar said that the supporters of the team unfairly harassed him.

According to The Guardian,  he discussed the conflicted emotions he felt when Lionel Messi, a former teammate from PSG and Barcelona, won the World Cup with Argentina last year in an interview with Globo that aired on Sunday.

Several PSG supporters criticized Lionel Messi and Neymar for the team’s failure to win the Champions League. By the time they left Paris, both players had received boos. The Brazilian remarked, “We get upset because we’re not there for nothing; we’re there to give it our all, [to] be winners, and strive to make history.

This summer, Messi left PSG and joined Inter Miami in Major League Soccer, where he has completely changed the course of the team’s fortunes. Neymar said that PSG supporters were unfair in their criticism of the Argentine. “He’s a guy who trains, who fights, if he loses, he gets angry, and he was unfairly targeted, in my opinion.”

But fan abuse is an issue everywhere, not just in France. Neymar also discussed the racial taunts that his friend Vincius Jnior received in Spain.
