Ligue 1: PSG Midfielder Marquinhos Speaks On Harsh Criticism Of Mega Signing Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain defender, Marquinhos has spoken out in defence of criticism faced by his team-mate, Neymar.
Marquinhos dismissed concerns over Neymar’s temperament insisting it’s impossible for the forward to please everyone.
Neymar has been on the headline since his high-profile switch from Barcelona to the French capital.
“For everything Neymar has been doing on the pitch, whoever thinks he’s not [performing as expected] must be watching another game. He’s a different player, a star, someone who instantly becomes a target for other players, for the press and fans,” said Marquinhos.
“Just like all the other great players, [opinion] will never be unanimous. There will always be those who do not like him, and others who admire him.
“It’s important is to have character…Neymar has a good head on his shoulders, is very important for Brazil and we are all trying to help with his adaptation in Paris.
“I believe he has already adapted to the city and the club. He came to get titles and is a big player. You can’t please everyone in life, which is especially true for great stars,” said Marquinhos.
