Neymar Jr. has been left stunned by ‘MAKESHIFT PITCH’ that Al Hilal are set to play on in Iran

October 3, 2023

Tuesday night sees the return of Neymar Jr.’s Al Hilal, who play Iranian team Nassaji Mazandaran in the AFC Champions League at the Azadi Stadium.

After drawing 1-1 with Uzbekistan’s Navbahor, Jorge Jesus’ team will face them in their second match in Group D.

But there are significant issues with the playing field. Days before the game, video showed concrete becoming exposed while ground employees dressed casually placed the last bits of thin turf on top of it.

@ActuSPL posted the video online, where it received over 3 million views. When Neymar, a Β£78 million transfer from Paris Saint-Germain to Al Hilal, came across it, he was unable to contain his reaction.

“This is not possible,” the Brazilian retorted, adding the laughing and face-palming emojis.
