Former Atletico Madrid and Spain defender Juanfran has shared his impressions of the game against Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar, who he crossed paths with when the Brazilian played for Catalonia’s Barcelona.
“I was told by everyone that off the field he was a good guy. But on the field he was unbearable. He provoked us with and without the ball. However, I wasn’t a saint either,” Juanfran said in an interview for Cadena SER, he was quoted as saying by Marca.
It will be recalled that Neymar moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a record €222m. With the Parisian club, the Brazilian has won the French championship three times. Neymar’s contract with the French club expires in 2022 and has not yet been renewed. There have been rumours in the media about the possible return of the Brazilian to the Catalan giants.
