Cantona cannot understand why Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain

By Isoccer Staff

Eric Cantona has questioned Neymar’s motives in signing for Paris Saint-Germain, slamming the Brazilian’s ambition.

The 25-year-old stunned the footballing world when he left Barcelona for the Ligue 1 giants at the start of the season, signing for a world record-breaking £199million.

It has since been claimed that the Brazilian has lost motivation to play for PSG, who are running away with the league, against smaller teams in France.

And it seems Cantona can understand why this might be the case – if indeed it is – as he hit out Neymar’s decision to leave the Catalan giants.

“When you’re 25 and you’ve played for Brazil and Barcelona… you kind of have to ask yourself what you’re doing playing against Guingamp or Amiens,” Cantona told Yahoo Sport.

“The Champions League? It’s 10 games in a season.

“I absolutely cannot understand why he’s come. It’s not the understanding I have of passion and football.”

Neymar has made eight appearances for the Ligue 1 club this season, and has found the target on seven occasions.
