Neymar was asked to give his predictions on the Premier League top four this season and it’s fair to see Liverpool fans won’t be happy with what he’s had to say.
The Reds have been paired in the same Champions League group as PSG – and their main man’s comments about where he reckons they will finish domestically are no doubt causing a stir.
The Reds will host PSG in the first of their two Group C games against the Ligue 1 giants in two weeks and Neymar has had his say on the quality of Jurgen Klopp’s side. Neymar has introduced an added element of spice to Paris Saint-Germain’s upcoming Champions League group clash with Liverpool.
The Express asked him the all-important question at a Poker Stars event in Barcelona and though he doesn’t speak much English, which led to his mate trying his best translate – Neymar did eventually get his opinion out.
He thinks Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side will become the first side to win back-to-back Premier League titles since Manchester United in 2011, but he’s also omitted Liverpool, who many are tipping as their biggest threat, from his top four entirely.
“It’s very hard, it’s very difficult, but Manchester City will win it,” he responded.
“Second will be United, third is Chelsea. Fourth is Tottenham.”
Gerard Pique, his former teammate at Barcelona, was in Neymar’s company for the chat and it’s said he couldn’t his shock at Neymar’s controversial call.
