Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil defender Thiago Silva believes Neymar is aware of his mistakes and is hoping his compatriot will step up for his team this season.
Neymar was the centre of a never-ending drama in the transfer market, with Barcelona putting pressure on PSG to make the sale as the Brazilian sought a return to a team that he left two years ago.
PSG closed the door after Barcelona failed to meet their demands, leaving Neymar at the club for at least one more year.
“He also knows that he has made mistakes but has no bad intentions. This boy is amazing, I hope he’s going to have a great season. It will be unforgettable too because PSG will celebrate its 50 years,” he told reporters after Brazil’s 2-2 draw against Colombia in a friendly, according to Goal.
“Tuchel has always said he was counting on Neymar.
“If I do not say nonsense, he was already ready to play in the last match against Metz. But because of the situation on the transfer market, he had not played.
“But the coach could already count on him. So I think it’s important. Management also believes in him, otherwise, they would have let him go. We are happy about that.
“I hope he’s going to have better days. It’s really my wish because we know him, not just the player, but the person. Especially after the last year.”
