Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar Jr. has once again proven that there is possible bad blood between him, PSG and his club teammate Kylian Mbappe after he recently liked an Instagram post criticising the France star.
The Brazilian international was recently subject to protest from the club’s ultra fans, who gathered in front of his house in Bougival, asking the 31-year-old to get lost from the club.
The Brazil international has since posted a cryptic message on Instagram, writing as reported by Sportskeeda:
“Don’t allow for people to put you in their storm, but put them in your peace.”
Since moving to Paris in 2017, Neymar has divided opinions and has never really gained the fans’ trust. His flamboyant lifestyle, as well as his injury record, has not helped his course, while his social media activity of late has further alienated him.
Recently he liked an Instagram post criticising PSG. And he has once again landed himself in hot water with the fans after he appeared to like a video that claimed that Mbappe was the ‘prince’ of the club is the worst.
The video that Neymar liked also defended him and Lionel Messi, claiming:
“Instead of protesting against the horrible management, the fans continue to protest against Neymar and Messi.”
Neymar’s relationship with Mbappe
Neymar and Mbappe joined PSG the same season and have enjoyed productive times together. Both sides have played 136 matches together and have combined for 54 goals while playing for PSG.
But they have never really clicked off-field. While Kylian Mbappe is undoubtedly the focus of PSG’s project for at least another year, Neymar’s future remains in doubt. The Frenchman reportedly told the club to sell Neymar before he agreed to extend his stay last season.
While that report was unsubstantiated, both players seem to remain at loggerheads, and Neymar’s recent social media activity looks to have confirmed it.
Meanwhile, there have been reports that Neymar could be on his way out of the club this summer, with Manchester United, Newcastle and Chelsea linked.
