In a recent report from SPORT, the Spanish media outlet revealed that former Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar Jr. was at odds with Al-Hilal manager Jorge Jesus.
The 2015 UEFA Champions League winner would have clashed with his Jesus after the draw in the Asian Champions League against Navbahor (1-1). Jesus would have criticized the Brazilian for his bad attitude on the pitch.
Nonetheless, the 31-year-old responded on his Instagram account, stating that these reports out of Spain are lies.
“Lies,” Neymar wrote (h/t RMC Sport). “You need to stop believing these things. Pages like this, with millions of subscribers, cannot continue to publish fake news. With all respect in the world, I ask you to stop this. It’s very disrespectful.”

After seven matchdays, Al-Hilal is second in the championship, one point behind the leader, Al-Ittihad. However, the Saudi Arabian club has one win and two draws in the three games featuring the Brazilian.
Meanwhile, PSG is thriving without Neymar so far, as the French giants picked up a Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund (2-0) last Tuesday. Afterward, the team crushed Olympique de Marseille (4-0) in the latest installment of Le Classique a few days later on Sunday.
