Speaking in the mixed zone to reporters at the Stade de France following PSG’s Coupe de France final loss vs. Rennes on penalties, Brazilian attacker Neymar hit out at his team-mates.
“We need to be more like men in the dressing room, more together. I see a lot of younger players who are, not necessarily lost, but they lack more ear than mouth. They need to listen more than they talk. Sometimes when a more experienced guy speaks, they answer back. When the coach speaks, they answer back. This is not how a team will go far. We are more experienced, so they must respect us some more, listen more. I did the same when I was starting out.”
