Wenger questions Neymar’s decision to leave Barcelona for PSG
Many football stars aspire to play alongside the best talent in the world but Neymar “decided to go the other way”, according to Arsene Wenger.
Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a stunning coup by luring Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record €222 million in August.
He has been joined by Kylian Mbappe at Parc des Princes, having sacrificed the chance to continue his fruitful partnership with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in attack at Camp Nou.
Arsenal manager Wenger, speaking to beIN SPORTS, acknowledged his surprise that a global talent in the prime of his career would choose to leave the La Liga giants.
“Neymar never expressed exactly in his statement the reasons of his move, because there is always a huge desire for the players to play with the best players,” he said.
