PSG and Brazilian International forward, Neymar Jr, reportedly vented his anger on two of his teammates following the club’s 3-1 loss to Monaco.
The former Barcelona star and father of David Lucca who recently had a wild bash on his 31st birthday clashed with Vitinha and Hugo Ekitike, before exchanging words with the club’s director of football Luis Campos in a heated dressing room disagreement.
Monaco humbled the French giant to a shocking 3-1 defeat in a Ligue 1 encounter on Saturday, February 11.
Meanwhile, the PSG star was less impressed about the awful performance and was claimed to have reprimanded Vitinha for failing to pass him the ball in the right spot and Ekitike for his poor decision-making during the Parisian’s loss to Monaco.
According to L’Equipe, while the players returned to the dressing room, PSG’s sporting director, Campos voiced out his vexation at their ‘shameful attitudes’ and ‘lack of aggressiveness displayed on the pitch that flopped their performance against Monaco.
However, the Brazilian playmaker, Neymar got enraged with the director’s fuss and exchanged words with Campos.
The hot tension caught the attention of Monaco officials and players who were said to be shocked by the ‘lively and long’ altercation.
There was a suggestion that Neymar’s frustrations heightened as PSG struggled without Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi who were both sidelined due to injury.
On the contention, PSG’s boss Christophe Galtier confessed he’s very much disappointed in the fracas and said he’s worried about Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich during his downbeat post-match press conference.
The 56-year-old French tactician, Galtier is now under rising pressure at the Parc des Princes, ahead of their fierce Champions League round-of-16 clash against Bayern Munich amid injury doubts over the golden boot winner Kylian Mbappe and World Cup hero Lionel Messi.
Galtier, after the 3-1 defeat against Monaco said: “There was a lack of intensity. It is the current state of the team. I can’t hide behind that.”
”The state of the team is like this. It is strange but true. It is bizarre to say that as a PSG manager, but it is the current reality.”
”I am worried about the match on Tuesday night. If I wasn’t that’d be something serious. We’ll see if some of those that couldn’t start the match today will be able to play on Tuesday.”
”We have a very weakened team and we’re worried. In this period, you have to stay clear-headed. I understand the fans’ anger. There is anger.”
However, Saturday’s loss to Monaco means the French giants are still topping the Ligue 1 table, having 54 points from 23 games with five points ahead of second-placed Marseille.
The Parisians have now lost three of their seven league matches in 2023, as many as in their previous 45 games in the tournament.
The French Ligue 1 champions will have a fierce encounter with Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday, February 14.
