after Brazil victory, Neymar refuses to answer a question about Mbappé

After Brazil’s easy victory against Ghana (3-0) in a friendly match on Friday in Le Havre, Neymar stopped in the mixed zone to respond to journalists. But he refused to answer a question about his partner at PSG Kylian Mbappé.

Quiet evening for Neymar. In great shape, the PSG striker confirmed his return to the fore by delivering another high-level performance with Brazil on Friday in a friendly match against Ghana (3-0). On the lawn of the Océane stadium in Le Havre where the Seleçao took up residence at the start of the week, Ney did not score but he offered two assists. “It’s a good result, we are getting closer to the World Cup, he said in the mixed zone. There is one game left (against Tunisia at the Park) and we are at the right tempo, the right rhythm. I think our team has found the balance. There are a lot of players with a lot of desire, they fight, it helps us. It makes the games easier and all this mixing (with young people) is very good. If everyone helps each other, everyone works as a group, as we do, we will have arguments for the World Cup.”

“Kylian? No”

Talkative about the Brazilian selection, Neymar was much less so about Kylian Mbappé. Asked about his relationship with the French striker, he sighed and replied “Kylian? No” before slipping away. An attitude that challenges when the two stars of PSG have experienced tense moments, especially at the start of the season after the penaltygate. “With Neymar, I think this is our sixth year together, the Frenchman said at the beginning of September. Our relationship uh… we have always had a relationship like this. Based on respect but always with moments like this, where there are colder moments and others a little warmer, continued the 23-year-old striker. There are times when we are going to be best friends and times when we talk to each other less. It’s the nature of our relationship that’s like that.”
