Former French forward Jerome Rothen has called for Neymar to soon leave Paris Saint-Germain.
During an airing of his “Rothen s’enflamme” program on Thursday, Rothen took some time to speak about the group of PSG ultras who made headlines on Wednesday after they gathered outside Neymar’s home and called for him to depart from the club. Rothen also laid out a case for why this must come to fruition.
“With everything that’s been happening lately, Neymar has to go,” Rothen said. “It’s gone too far, and today you see that PSG fans, PSG lovers, and even me as a lover of the club, see far too many shortcomings and there is a fed up.
“They showed it yesterday, and they will continue to show it. … Neymar, it’s been six years since he’s been here, it’s been five years that he’s been given a chance every year. It’s a failure, it’s like Messi. And so goodbye.”
Overall, Neymar has four years left on his contract at PSG.
