Thomas Meunier spoke about his time at PSG. The former player of the club speaks in particular about Neymar.
For Goal.com, Thomas Meunier talks about the personality of Neymar, far from the bling bling image. “He likes to invite his teammates to parties or restaurants. Neymar is a simple guy in his private life. He is like many Brazilians, he always smiles, makes jokes and likes social contacts. It’s easy to put him in a group. Cavani and Thiago Silva are also quite normal people,” he said. Meunier also spoke about his arrival at PSG, in this locker room of stars. “It was like a slap in the face because I realized for the first time what performance I had put in to get to this point in the first place.
“I lived in Paris and played with all these famous and very good players, it was the dream come true of the life of a professional footballer. Nobody knew me at first, but I played regularly and played well. It didn’t take long for people around the world to recognize me, but of course it was never like Neymar or Cavani. I could always go to a restaurant or a movie”.
