In a recent interview with Sabri Parisien ou Rien (via Canal Supporters) on Instagram Live, former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Nenê spoke about how he would like to finish his career with Les Parisiens.
At 39-years-old, time is winding down on the current Fluminense FC player, and despite being Brazilian and currently playing in his homeland, Nenê wants to finish off his career in Paris where he endured his best years.
“I don’t like to talk when I stop. I’m going to be 39, and every year I’m told when I’m going to stop. I say that I am good. I take pleasure. It’s something I like. So I’m enjoying it, but it will happen one day, in three or four years, I don’t know. I think I have this desire to end my career in Paris, maybe,” Nenê said. “I believe that for the club and the supporters would have been good and for me too. I think it would be wonderful. Before I stop, I would like to spend a last little moment there, I can’t project myself much, because I’m still a Fluminense player, but I can feel it inside of me.”
From 2010 to 2013, the Brazilian made 112 appearances for the capital club while scoring 48 goals and 46 assists. The number of times Nenê has suited up for PSG is the most in his career, followed by 82 with CR Vasco da Gama.
With PSG being the club he’s played for the most, it’s easy to see why Nenê has an attachment to the capital club. Nonetheless, at 39, actually playing for his former club isn’t a realistic option.
However, in sports, plenty of times, there are instances where a player returns to a former team to sign a one-day contract to retire. Even 38-year-old Djibril Cisse wants to return to Ligue 1 to score his 100th goal. If Nenê would like to retire in Paris, then this could certainly be his best option.
