Neymar admits being scared of injuries: ‘Those type of things should not happen’

After beating Le Havre 9-0 in a friendly match, Paris Saint-Germain added another seven goals as they beat Waasland-Beveren 7-0 on Friday. The Belgian home side were very aggresive at times, aiming some heavy charges on Neymar, Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe. After the game Neymar was asked about the aggressive nature of Waasland-Beveren.

“Yes we were a little scared. We are here for a friendly match so those types of things should not have been happening”, the Brazilian told BeIN Sports. “We are here to prepare ourselves, but also to be careful. But us too, we gave them a little bit back, so there are no problems.”

Neymar added: “I was very happy to come back and play at home, with some fans as well. We are preparing little by little to get to the maximum then we will be in the finals [Champions League]. The rest is not very important.” PSG are currently preparing to play the Coupe de France final against Saint-Etienne next week.
