Neymar’s Turbulent PSG Exit: Allegations of Training Conduct Surface

Former PSG Star Faces Controversy as Career Shifts Post-PSG

French sports outlet L’Equipe recently shed light on the controversial departure of Brazilian football icon Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), unveiling details about his alleged behavior towards the end of his tenure with the Ligue 1 giants.

As per L’Equipe’s investigation, former PSG players and staff members disclosed that Neymar had reportedly “sometimes showed up drunk” to training sessions during the final phase of his six-year spell with the Parisian club. The publication also delved into a series of incidents involving Neymar, including his involvement in a training ground altercation between Lionel Messi, Achraf Hakimi, and Sergio Ramos during Christophe Galtier’s managerial era. Furthermore, Neymar was accused of directing anger towards youth player Ismael Gharbi, and his once-strong relationship with Kylian Mbappe was said to have deteriorated over time.

Following extensive pressure from PSG fans for Neymar to part ways with the club, the Brazilian international made a high-profile move to Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Hilal on a lucrative two-year contract worth approximately €90 million (£77m/$96m). This transfer was viewed by many as a turning point signaling the downward trajectory of Neymar’s career, which had previously seen immense success during his stint with Barcelona.

However, Neymar’s transition to Al-Hilal has been marred by setbacks, notably his injury woes. The 32-year-old suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament while on international duty with Brazil in October of last year, sidelining him from competitive action since then. Despite playing just five matches for Al-Hilal before sustaining the injury, Neymar remains focused on his recovery and recently attended Al-Hilal’s emphatic 4-1 victory over Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Super Cup, hinting at his readiness for a return next season.
