Neymar: ‘Working together for the same goal’

The Paris Saint-Germain striker was speaking at a press conference ahead of the UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Bayern Munich at the PARC des Princes on Tuesday 14 February at 9pm.

His state of mind

“I feel really good physically and mentally. Some races are more complicated than others. Some games, you can’t do everything right. Criticism is fair game. I have always done my best for the team and I will continue to do so. I have confidence in myself and the team. I know my abilities and qualities. We have prepared for this game. We know it won’t be easy, but we have a very good team and can play a great game on Tuesday.”


“There’s a lot of respect between all of us. Sometimes we disagree, but we always communicate with each other to improve what can be improved. Paris Saint-Germain are used to winning every game. When we lose, frustration sets in, and talking about it is part of the process of growing and improving on mistakes. We must continue to work together for the same goal.”

Bayern Munich

“Every game has its history. I love playing in these big games, against great players and great clubs. It is in these moments that great players come out on top. It will not be an easy game because Bayern Munich have great players. Our biggest target is the Champions League. We will have to pay attention to the details. The Champions League is like the World Cup, the team that makes the fewest mistakes goes furthest. We know the difficulties, but we have a lot of quality. We know what we can do.

Kylian Mbappe

“Killian is extremely important to this team. We feel stronger when we are all on the pitch. I hope he can play some minutes on Tuesday. He’s doing well and he feels good. These are good signs, good signs. I think he has recovered very well.

Marco Verratti

“Marco is a great player. We all know his qualities. Everything is easier when he is on the pitch. He’s one of the best players I’ve ever played with.
