Neymar proved why he is being pursued by top European clubs after scoring a late winner in PSG’s 1-0 win over Strasbourg in front of hostile home supporters.
The Brazilian whose transfer to Barcelona or Real Madrid failed in the summer, made his first appearance of the season for the Parisians.
And he was greeted with lots of whistles and chants also targeted at his father as several insulting banners were also displayed around Parc des Princes.
But the 27-year-old did not seem to be affected with the reception as he perfectly timed his over-head kick from a well delivered Abdou Diallo’s cross into the net.
Neymar missed the opening four games in Ligue 1 this season because of his speculated move to Spain. However, an agreement was unable to be reached for the former Barcelona star and he decided to stay for another season with the French champions.
Neymar’s name was booed around the stadium before the game started and large messages were also directed at the attacker by fans in their thousands.
