ONLY ONE BOSS: Neymar Made PSG Manager Change This One Thing In Training

Unai Emery cannot afford to have another disappointing campaign, after failing to win the prestigious Champions League and even Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain last season.

This summer, the French giants went all guns blazing in signing Neymar for a world record fee, before also getting Kylian Mbappe on an initial loan deal which will be made permanent in the summer for another mammoth deal.

And to the manager’s liking, Neymar has been in hot form both domestically and in Europe, as PSG sit pretty on top in Ligue 1, and have also qualified for the knockouts of the Champions League.

Neymar has wielded supremacy on the pitch, and despite his initial issues with Edinson Cavani, the feud now seems to have faded off, with both players scoring freely at will.

Although tensions regarding Neymar’s problems with the Uruguayan striker have eased off, there is a fresh wave of an uneasy feeling that Emery has found himself in.

This time, according to Goal, the former Sevilla manager is struggling to fulfill the demands of the 25-year-old Brazilian star.

Neymar is said to be unhappy with Emery’s training methods, and the player has had his way in the end. There were no signs of the forward being told to get on with it, as video analysis was cut short in PSG’s training sessions because the superstar seemingly was not liking it.

The former Santos player is said to have a wave of power at the club after his world record fee, and he is trying to get his way out by exercising it.

Emery, for now, will hope the world class player will keep performing to his potential, and help the side win major laurels. By then, he will also be wanting to get the issues sorted, to show the Brazilian that no player is bigger than the club.
