‘This boy talks too much’ – Neymar hits back at ex-PSG team-mate Meunier after being told he ‘lost his magic in Paris’ | The Sun

NEYMAR has fired back at former Paris Saint-Germain teammate Thomas Meunier after he claimed the Brazilian has "lost his magic".

The Belgian right-back, who is now at Borussia Dortmund, has clearly annoyed Neymar with his remarks.


Meunier told Kicker: "I have to admit that I was a big fan of Neymar when he was at Barcelona.

"The 'remontada' in the Champions League quarter-final (Barcelona 6-1 PSG) was completely him. If I was ten years old, I would have had a poster of him in my bedroom.

"From my point of view, in Paris, he lost his magic."

Neymar, 30, responded on Instagram saying: "This boy talks too much."

The pair were team-mates at PSG for four years winning three Ligue 1 titles together but they never won the elusive Champions League.

Neymar may have dropped off in form according to Meunier but last season he still scored 13 goals and got eight assists in 28 games.

Although this is less than he previously managed in the campaign before when he netted 17 and registered 11 assists in 31 matches.

Meunier made 128 appearances for PSG and also opened up on how tough leaving the club.

He said: "At Paris, I was side-lined by Leonardo, the sporting director at the time, because I didn’t want to extend my contract.

"In private, it wasn’t easy for me either, and nor was it easy for me to leave Paris.

"My wife, my children and myself all loved the city. It was difficult to leave."
