Usually, when a player kisses the club’s badge during a fixture, it signals his affection and dedication to the club. Players also usually do this at times when there is doubt regarding their future with the team.
It is well documented that Neymar is heading into a contract dilemma with Paris Saint-Germain. The forward’s contract is set to be up a year following this season.
But to once again silence any doubts about his future with the club, the Brazilian elected to kiss the PSG badge following the team’s win over Olympique de Marseille in the Trophee des Champions final.
