According to the Brazilian footballer, Neymar has many bridged to rebuild at Parc des Princes after his summer transfer saga turned sour.

During the summer transfer window, Neymar Junior wanted to leave Paris Saint-Germain and return to Barcelona.

And according to his Brazil national team teammate, Paulo Cesar, he fell from the world’s top 3 best players list.

“I hope that Neymar will give the answer that everyone expects on the pitch. He must prove that he has become strong again,” he told Goal.

“Arriving at PSG, he was in the top three players in the world. For two years, he has not been a part of it. We know his abilities, so it’s normal to expect much better from him.”

“I believe in Neymar’s return to his best,” he added.

“He still needs games, so we’ll wait and see. It’s been two years since he played important games. Neymar was seriously injured twice.”

Paulo Cesar commented: “What he does in private does not bother me. But he must still be careful. If he takes good care of his body, then that is the best way to avoid injuries.”

“For me, he performed a smart match,” Cesar said after witnessing a dramatic stoppage-time bicycle kick against Strasbourg.”

“In the first half, he almost did not keep the ball, just three touches maximum, because he knew he would be whistled. He was good at passing and moving. Then he started to let go. His goal is pure Neymar!” he concluded.
