With World Cup looming, Neymar admits he's scared

With World Cup looming, Neymar admits he's scared”

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has repeatedly insisted Neymar is not for sale and the player himself hinted that he is staying put after modelling the club's new kit for next season.

"I would say to him: "It is not because I made these statements that I have no regard for you".

The Brazilian star moved from La Liga giants Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain last summer for a record transfer deal of £198 million.

Neymar told Brazilian station TV Globo: "Nobody is as scared as me (about returning)".

"We will be in Russian Federation to play something very important. I think it's one of the most hard I've ever had, because I'm very close to a dream I have, which is the World Cup", said Neymar, who broke a bone in his neck in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and missed the semifinal, which the hosts lost, 7-1, to Germany. "I hope it is my cup".

Marquinhos who will also travel to Russian Federation for the FIFA World Cup with Neymar added that there may have been issues of adapting to life in France and a row with Cavani but explained that is all settled, "Maybe there were some times where he had trouble adapting, but we, the coach and the players, tried to manage that".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported about Neymar's frustrations concerning the rumours surrounding his future with PSG. If he is to gain match practice before the World Cup his chances will come in warm-up games against Croatia in Liverpool on June 3 and against Austria in Vienna three days later.

The 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup will kick off on June 14th with hosts Russian Federation taking on Saudi Arabia in a Group A encounter at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow. Brazil has been formed in Group-E with Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland.
