Sparkling in these last two Ligue 1 matches with his acolytes from the PSG attack, Neymar finally seems to be finding his football again. However, the Brazilian player’s lifestyle does not bode well.
Finally, PSG supporters were able to savor all the technique and quality of their attacking trio made up of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé. In two matches, the three men exploded Lorient (5-1) then Clermont (6-1) with a huge impact in terms of goals and assists. If Kylian Mbappé was in the momentum of his last months, it is a return to the fore for Neymar. The Brazilian was injured at the start of the year, then he was struggling in his resumption matches. But, in the space of a week, he offered himself five goals and actively participated in his team’s displays of force. From there to imagining that five years after leaving Barça to sign for Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar had finally become a full-time footballer again, there is a step that everyone is reluctant to take.
Neymar must lose weight, PSG must impose this on him
Some are already dreaming of a Neymar found for the future and especially for next season. What if he returned to the level he was at between 2014 and 2018, before his first injury in Paris? A perspective brushed aside by the former LOSC player, Ludovic Obraniak. The current consultant for the L’Equipe channel judges that the Brazilian does not display the adequate physique to do this. Extra pounds symbolic of a lack of seriousness and mental wear and tear that make him fear that the good years of Neymar have already passed and that unfortunately the 2016 Olympic champion has begun his slow decline. For Obraniak, the damage is done and reality will catch up with the Parisian footballer.

” If the question is whether he can return to the top. Already, look at him, he didn’t have the same physique at all when he was on top. Physically, he is completely transformed. It has taken on more mass, it is less light, it is less twirling, it is less airy. When you look at Benzema, Lewandowski, Ronaldo, it’s something else. To be at the top level at a certain age, you have to be extremely demanding. Neymar started football very early. Maybe today, with all that stardom, he’s got some wear and tear. Maybe he doesn’t want all that anymore “said Ludovic Obraniak. Without going through a cure in Merano, the dilemma seems simple for Neymar: better physical shape or the end of medium-term ambitions. The example of Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema suggest that the Brazilian is almost forced into a forced diet to weigh on the European scene. But does he really want it? The question arises when we see that on Saturday evening, after the correction put in Clermont, and a hat-trick, the Brazilian footballer came in the middle of the night to chamber those who accuse him of drinking too much by illustrating his message with a glass of red wine.

A provocation that had angered another former player, Jérôme Rothen. ” Neymar? But shut up ! You give us three goals and you come to show off because you scored 5 goals in two games? He takes us all for idiots, hams. (…) It will not erase the rest. I think the majority of people want to see Neymar go in June. And as if by chance, by dint of saying and observing, today in Doha they are asking the question. They took time but they think it was a bad idea, to extend it and have taken it “Launched the man who wore the Paris Saint-Germain jersey this week. A terrible observation concerning a player who too rarely proves that he is still capable of totally incredible gestures. The real Neymar is so strong that we cannot accept what he has slowly become.
