The last weekend, psg lost surprisingly against Rennes for a new day of Ligue 1 and the French media did not hesitate to harshly criticize Lionel Messione of the figures of the Parisian painting.
“We didn’t see the extravagance of the ball at the foot that we are used to seeing. The Argentine tried to work for his team, coming above all to recover balls in his thirty meters, before sinking in a second half, ”L’Equipe said about the Argentine striker.
“Failed broadcasts and limited influence. The recent world champion suffered like last year inside Roazhon Park”, published Le Parissien.
However, the toughest questioning came from RMC Sport, who dedicated the following words: “He had a good half-season because he was preparing for the World Cup, he was training. Now, it’s over. He is the starter because Galtier, the great revolutionary with Campos, leaves him on the field”.
Neymar is not saved either
The Brazilian was also the center of “attacks” from the French press. “Like against Angers in the middle of the week, he went down a lot for balls and too often tried to make the difference alone. Result: he lost balls in sensitive areas and almost never caused danger in the Rennes area. Worrying performance just under a month before the Champions League and the first leg of the round of 16 against Bayern”, said L’Equipe.
“The Brazilian had too much waste to exist in this game. He fell apart in several duels and never managed to influence his team’s game. Almost always defeated under pressure”, said Le Parissien about ‘Ney’.
“Do we realize that Neymar, in terms of hiring and salary, is the biggest failure in the history of football? I can’t think of a bigger failure for what it cost, it’s horrible. The fact that he has been fine in two Final 8 games in 2020 does not mean that he will save your life, ”RMC Sport attacked with the signature of his journalist Daniel Rolo.
