Decidedly, Neymar lives a frustrating end of the year 2022.

Eliminated in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar with Brazil by Croatia (1-1, 4-2 on penalties), the Parisian striker was expelled for the resumption of Ligue 1, Wednesday against Strasbourg (2-1).

As indicated by Canal +, "Ney" left the Parc des Princes even before the end of the meeting won in extremis 10 against 11 by PSG on a penalty from Kylian Mbappé (90th + 6).

“I can understand that there is frustration and anger at home”, commented Christophe Galtier without mentioning this hasty departure from the stadium.

The Parisian technician does not dispute the second yellow card of his player (62nd) for having tried to obtain a penalty by collapsing roughly in the Strasbourg area.

"I saw the images again, there is simulation, it's yellow", admitted Galtier, "but a minute before he had suffered a fault, he had suffered a large number of faults, and not small faults".

Neymar had received his first warning a minute before his expulsion, for putting his hand in the face of Alsatian Adrien Thomasson.

Neymar suspended against Lens

“There was a lot of impact, Strasbourg is a team that plays well, releases a lot of power, I regret that the excessive commitment was not punished more severely, which generated a little frustration for Ney added the coach.

The Brazilian "also wanted [like Kylian Mbappé] to play both games, unfortunately this will not be the case" because he will be suspended against Lens on January 1, concluded Galtier, who will (still) have to manage the states soul of one of its stars.
