Video: Pochettino Evaluates Neymar’s Performances So Far This Season

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has had a promising start to the season. The Brazilian has not had his way with scoring multiple key goals but has been influential as a playmaker.

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino stands much impressed with Neymar’s play this season. During a press conference ahead of PSG’s Ligue 1 away fixture against Rennes (via PSG’s official YouTube channel), Pochettino offered an evaluation of the forward’s performances so far over the ongoing campaign.

“I don’t know if Neymar has a new role, but it’s a new season for all of us with new circumstances and all the players have to adapt to that,” Pochettino said. “I’m pleased with his commitment and attitude. It’s clear that players like Neymar need to score goals and create openings going forward.

“But I think he has had a good start to the season. We are pleased with him, and it’s also important to look at his commitment defensively.”

The Brazilian talent sure will look to put together a keen showing in the team’s upcoming matchup with Rennes.
