Brazilian superstar Neymar has expressed his desire to add the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League to his trophy cabinet after failing to win the trophy since his 2014/2015 triumph with Barcelona.
After helping PSG qualify for the quarter-final stage, the rest of the competition is said to be played in a one off tie with August 23 scheduled as the final day of the competition which will be held in Lisbon.
PSG have already been crowned as Champions of the Ligue 1 after the league was brought to a premature end due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It will certainly be a while before the French club plays a competitive match, but Neymar is optimistic about his clubs chances of making an impressive return to win the European competition.
Neymar: “If it’s God’s will we’ll make history”
“This period was atypical, but the main focus was to keep safe, with steady body and mind,” the Brazil star said via his official website.
“I am ready and excited to return, thinking a lot about the Champions League, of course. We have a strong group, conquered a historical qualification, with the same intensity and dedication, but I miss the heat of the game. I can barely wait to enter the pitch and to, if it’s God’s will, make history.”
Neymar’s fitness coach seems impressed with Neymar’s attitude since the league was cancelled.
“The main emphasis was Neymar’s dedication, effort and performance he had, his focus,” Rosa said. “I’ve never had the possibility of being three months straight with him and he demonstrated dedication and commitment, excited to do his job, showcasing trust and respect for my work.”
