In difficulty since the start of 2023, Neymar would have been diminished by his ankle injury during the first matches after the World Cup.
After a great first part of the season, Neymar has been struggling since returning from the World Cup, when he was knocked out in the quarter-finals with Brazil. Less influential in the game Paris Saint Germain and less decisive, the Brazilian international is under fire from critics and singled out as one of those responsible for the capital club’s bad run.
Neymar physically diminished
At the heart of a very tense exchange with Luis Campos, singled out after having participated in a poker tournament and eaten in a fast food restaurant after the defeat against the Bayern Munich, the former Barcelonan is also in bad shape physically. As explained The Team, the latter would still be hampered by his ankle injury he contracted during the World Cup in Qatar. He would have liked to play because he knew that the club was counting on him for the important matches against OM, Monaco and especially Bayern.
🔴 Neymar played the first 6 games after the recovery with his ankle still down.
He did it because PSG were counting on him. He has no intention of giving up. He is convinced to find his superb once his physical glitches are settled.

Despite everything, the Parisian number 10 does not intend to give up and intends to return to the best of his form once he is rid of his physical glitches.
