Although he's performing well on the pitch, it's fair to say Neymar has had a rocky start to his Paris Saint-Germain career off of it. 

The Brazilian has reportedly already fallen out with members of his new squad and coach Unai Emery following his record-breaking move from Barcelona.  

Some members of the PSG squad are unhappy with the special treatment Neymar is entitled to, which apparently includes having two personal physiotherapists and being let off from defensive duties. 

To make things worse, the forward also had a very public spat with striker Edinson Cavani back in September, when the pair clashed over who should take a penalty. 

Despite the reported rifts in the team, Neymar has already been paying off his £200 million fee and has 11 goals from 12 appearances in Ligue 1 and the Champions League already this season. 

The 25-year-old and many of his teammates are currently on international duty, but despite not playing club football this week, speculation about the forward's career in France continues to mount. 

In fact, during a press conference following Brazil's 3-1 win against Japan on Friday, Neymar became emotional while defending himself against reports he's unhappy at PSG. 

He asked the press to stop creating stories that aren't true and claimed he's happy with his current team before appearing to leave the conference in tears.

Neymar himself is not the only one who believes he's settled in at Paris, with teammate Kylian Mbappe also moving to quell any reports that the club's front line isn't getting along. 

"He feels good here and will achieve great things," Mbappe told PSG's official website, per Goal

"Having a player like him who helps you every day is really good. He is a great player. We are very happy to have him with us."


The young Frenchman, who himself joined PSG in the summer, also insisted Neymar had a big influence in helping him settle into his new team. 

"He facilitated my integration, took me under his wing. With me, he behaves like a big brother." 

With both Neymar and teammate Mbappe confirming the Brazilian is happy in France, PSG will be hopeful of big things this season. 


The side are expecting to challenge for both Ligue 1 and the Champions League this term and a settled Neymar will be central to their plans.
