Ronaldo speaks on Neymar’s transfer to PSG
When Neymar decided to leave Brazilian back in 2013, great things was expected from the Brazilian especially with the fact that he joined a club like Barcelona.
He eventually spent four years in Catalonia, writing his name in the history books of the club along with the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
But in the summer of last year, Neymar decided to leave Barcelona to join Paris Saint Germain.
His departure turned a lot of heads with many wondering why he would decide to leave La Liga for the Ligue.
Manchester United legend Eric Cantona had previously called out the Brazilian for moving, and now fellow Brazilian Ronaldo Nazario has slammed Neymar for leaving Barcelona.
In an interview with Zico, Ronaldo says Neymar has taken a step backwards in his career.
“Sportingly, the decision is a step back,” he admitted.
“But there are challenges that everyone seeks.
“I played in Barcelona at the time and went to Inter when the Italian championship was much more competitive.”
Neymar has hit the ground running in France, finding the net 20 times in 22 appearances for Unai Emery’s side in all competitions.
