Ronaldo: Neymar took a step back leaving Barca for PSG

Adjust Comment Print

Cast your mind back to the summer and those sensational talks of Neymar leaving Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain began and materialised. They were once a part of the world's deadliest attacking trio, along with Luis Suarez.

The Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu when he eventually chooses to leave Paris St-Germain.

The Brazil worldwide has enjoyed a blistering start to life in the French capital, scoring 20 goals and bagging 14 assists in 20 games in all competitions so far.

But Ronaldo believes his decision to play for PSG is a bad career move.

That's the verdict of former Barca star Ronaldo, who offered his take on the switch during an interview with Brazilian legend Zico.

'But there are challenges that everyone seeks.

Italian champions Juve - beaten finalists for a second time in three years - are represented by veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Neymar continued his wonderful form on Wednesday night, scoring against Amiens as PSG reached the last four of the Coupe de la Ligue.

And given that Nantes haven't managed to better PSG in Ligue 1 since 2005, the Qatari-backed visitors are on target to add another three points to the 50 they have already banked.

I personally agree with what Ronaldo had to say about the player.

Reported by AS, the 41-year-old said: "Sportingly, the decision is a step back". He can be termed as a match-deciding element who can raise the level of his team with his qualities.
