They had not played together since April 27, and the final of the Coupe de France lost against Rennes. Meeting on Saturday on the turf of Bordeaux, it is nevertheless Neymar and Kylian Mbappé who allowed PSG to win 1-0, thanks to a goal from the star auriverde, well served by the French, back from injury. An obvious complicity in the field, but that also extends into life, says Isabela Pagliari, a journalist for the Brazilian television channel Esporte Interativo , at the microphone of Europe 1 Sports.
Scorer for the third time of the season, Neymar "saves once more the evening" of the PSG, notes the journalist, while the star, with the complicated relations with the supporters since his aborted departure in Barcelona, proclaimed after the match his will to "give his life to PSG".
"Neymar knows that Mbappé will succeed in following his game"
But for Isabela Pagliari, the other good news of the evening is the return of Kylian Mbappé, decisive passer, and whose natural complicity with Neymar could be good for a PSG at the beginning of the season. "Neymar really appreciates Kylian," she says. "Kylian has a lot of qualities, including speed, which allows PSG to have the volume of play." Before the return of Mbappé, she notes, "it was a little sad". But, adds the journalist, "Kylian Mbappé impresses the opponents on the field and Neymar knows that he will succeed to follow his game, while sometimes, I have the impression that the other players of the PSG do not manage to follow the game of Neymar, because he thinks ahead of everyone ".
And this complicity does not stop at the ground, to believe the Brazilian journalist. "They are friends in the locker room, but also outside.They often go out together, even though there was talk of a star conflict in the past, because the two wanted to be the main person of the club, today they get along very well, and everyone respects its role, "she concludes.
