Coutinho backs Neymar to return to Barcelona


Coutinho backs Neymar to return to Barcelona

If I come here, a league without tradition, and they whistle me, I don't want to continue for one minute more.

Neymaralready regrets moving to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and is seeking a shock return to Barcelona, according to reports in the Spanish media.

A return to Barcelona has been mooted, as has a move to Real Madrid who have done little to quell speculation.

Philippe Coutinho has said that he would have no problem in welcoming Neymar back to Barcelona.

Do you think there is a chance the Brazilian will return to the Catalan club?

An injury that the Brazilian could theoretically have played through, with PSG facing into a decisive Champions League tie against Real Madrid, Neymar Jr's decision rendered him incapable of featuring in the club's biggest game since his record-breaking move there the summer before.

He is believed to have told former team-mates that he was wrong in wanting to step out from Lionel Messi's shadow and lacks the understanding he had with his former colleagues.

"I've got a good feeling about the Brazilian team", he confessed. The forward is sidelined through injury and is said to have requested his father find him an exit route so he doesn't have to pull on the French club's colours again.

"I am thinking as Rakitic does, I would like to have here the best players and Neymar is one of them", said fellow Brazil global Coutinho, who arrived from Liverpool in January.

Ruiz highlighted Al-Khelaifi's dropping faith in Neymar's commitment after the PSG figurehead recently said he was "2,000 percent sure" the player would stay in Paris beyond the summer.
