Neymar's day in Ligue 1, from being booed to matchwinning stunner

Paris Saint-German forward Neymar had a mixed day for the club on his return since his failed departure in the summer to Barcelona.

The Brazilian star was on the receiving end of boos throught the 90 minutes at home but scored the 90th-minute stunner to give the team all the three points against a stubborn Strasbourg. 

The forward was close to leaving the side in the summer, but the transfer fell through as the two clubs failed to agree on the transfer fee. 

 

 

He has not featured for the club since the start of the season, with a minor injury coupled with the saga surrounding his departure forcing coach Tuchel to leave him out of his starting teams for the opening matches. 

The manager backed the 27-year-old to overcome the boos and deliver for the team, same way he did on Saturday evening. 

"It was not easy because he is a sensitive guy, but he did well," he told a news conference.

"That's the life, it's not easy for the fans too during the transfer market. That's why we have to accept their behaviour. I don't want to judge their behaviour, it's like that. It was not easy," 

"He can play better, with more dribbling and more runs. He needs several games in order to find the right rhythm and his physical abilities to make our game faster with his sprints," 

"He has the quality to decide the destiny of a game. I am happy he showed that in the last minute,"

PSG will next host Real Madrid next week in a Champions League tie.
