Neymar on Lionel Messi: “He’s gone to heaven with the Argentina national team”


Neymar spoke about Lionel Messi winning the World Cup with the Argentina national team and their time together with Paris Saint-Germain.

Lionel Messi and Neymar are both close friends and went through the highest of high’s at club level with FC Barcelona to their lowest of lows in Paris. The Brazilian gave an interview to GE Globo and he spoke about Lionel Messi winning the World Cup with the Argentina national team. Here is what he had to say:

“I was very happy for the year he had but at the same time very sad because he’s experienced both sides of the coin. He’s gone to heaven with the Argentina national team, he’s won everything in recent years and with Paris, he lived through hell. We lived through hell, both he and I.

“We’re upset because we’re not there for nothing. We’re there to do our best, to be champions, to try and make history, that’s why we got back together. We got together to make history. Unfortunately, we didn’t succeed.

“Messi left (PSG) in a way that, in terms of football, he didn’t deserve. For everything he is, everything he does, anyone who knows him knows that he’s a guy who trains, who fights. If he loses, he gets angry and he was unfairly charged in my opinion.

“But at the same time I was very happy that he won the World Cup. As you said, football was fair this time, since the Brazilian team went out, Messi deserved to end his career like that.”

    Mbappe was the primary reason why it happened. He created his own group in the team and prioritized his individual success and glory over team. Otherwise a team with Messi as the play-maker & false nine and Mbappe and Neymar upfront, they could have achieved a lot more! Mbappe was lucky enough to the win the 2018 world cup , thanks to AFA and Sampoali! But he is not going to win anything this year! They will crash out of the group stages in Champions league.
    Additionally, his toxic followers the Ultras were used by him and the club to force both Messi and Neymar! I am glad whatever he and his bitch Hakimi did on and off the field , helped Argentina! It ignited the fire inside Messi who needed no extra motivation to win the ultimate prize and ironically he beat the very nation that made his life hell!
