Five reasons pushing Neymar towards leaving Ligue 1

There seem to be five strong reasons pushing Neymar away from France and Ligue 1 after his record-breaking 222 million euro move to Paris Saint-Germain back in the summer of 2017.

The Brazilian is solely focusing on reaching his best form ahead of the World Cup in Russia and will be looking to play the last matchdays against Amiens, Rennes and Stade Malherbe Caen to catch pace after his serious injury.

According to UOL Esporte, those could be his last matches in the PSG kit for several reasons:

Getting stuck in

Neymar believes that the footballers in Ligue 1 play too harsh on him. In France, he has received on average almost six fouls (5.7) per game, while in Spain the average was notably lower (3.5).

The referees

According to UOL Esporte, the Brazilian claims the referees in France make him feel unprotected on the field, as he receives more fouls than other players. Furthermore, Neymar was unhappy to be sent off against Marseille, resulting in a two-match suspension.

Technical level

Neymar believes that Ligue 1 players lack significant technical quality, which gives him less chance to be chosen as the best player in the world. He needs to shine in a strong championship like LaLiga or the Premier League.

Poor conditions

Since his move to Paris, the striker has been taken by surprise by the poor quality of the playing surfaces in France. He believes that it is a trick to stop Paris Saint-Germain from playing their game and also considers that the tall grass and holes on the pitch increase the risk of suffering an injury.

Trips and team gatherings

Neymar is not a fan of making trips by bus for away games. Sometimes, due to the proximity of the destination with respect to Paris, the club choose to not travel by plane or train, which irritates the Brazilian. In addition, the former Blaugrana man does not like that Unai Emery gathers the team on the eve of each home game.

In Barcelona, it was not like that.
