´I don´t care´: Neymar slams critics amid goalless run

Neymar has slammed critics of him following Paris Saint-Germain’s hard-fought 2-1 win over French champions Lille in Ligue 1 on Friday.

The Brazilian had a disappointing first half in PSG’s come-from-behind win, playing a key role in the second half including providing the assist for Angel Di Maria’s 88th-minute winner.

Neymar has not scored for PSG since netting from the penalty spot in a 2-1 win over Olympique Lyon on September 20, his only club goal of the 2021-22 season, prompting some criticism.

“The critics are normal. I’ve been playing football for 15 years, I don’t care,” Neymar told Amazon after the game.

“The most important critic is me. I know what I’m doing on the field for my team.

“Out there they don’t know what’s going on, what we’re doing. And I don’t care, I’ll continue.”

The chemistry between Neymar alongside new signing Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe has been questioned this term for PSG.

The Parisiens are top of Ligue 1 by 10 points, having dropped points only twice in 12 games, but expectations were for a more dominant forward line with Messi’s arrival.

Neymar has started six times for PSG since scoring against Lyon, providing three assists during that goalless run.

“It was a very difficult match,” Neymar about the Lille win. “They’re a good opposition. We fought to the end, we scored.”
