Powered by Firework Neymar’s transfer of 222 Million Euros from Barcelona to PSG was the most expensive of its time but the move wasn’t the kind of paradise that is expected at that price. With media fueling regular speculations and the player’s own disinterest, it mostly seemed that the Brazilian wanted a way out.Advertisement However, Neymar Senior, the player’s father spoke to RMC Sport to clear up the fact that Neymar is here to stay in Paris and the fans can rest assured.Advertisement “The contract is long with PSG.“We are only in the second season and it is not even over yet. We have a contract we are not even halfway through.Advertisement “These rumours of departure will always exist, we cannot have a player like Neymar without clubs dreaming about him.”He added: “Neymar’s desire to be at PSG was expressed two years ago, so the fans can sleep easy.“Today Neymar does not want to leave PSG, he wants to continue to help the club win titles.”Neymar does boast 48 goals in just 53 appearances for PSG and this excellent record with the capital club could increase along with the trophy count , given the form PSG are in lately.

Powered by Firework Vijay Shankar has been a polarising figure for the fans and critics alike after a series of sub-par performances. The all-rounder was slotted in the line-up after Shikhar Dhawan’s tournament came to a premature end owing to a hairline fracture. Advertisement Image Courtesy: Deccan ChronicleThe all-rounder’s World Cup journey has been off to a rough start. After bagging a wicket off his very first ball, things have gone only downhill for Shankar. The right-arm medium pacer is yet to deliver a solid outing in the crucial No.4 position for the Men In Blue. Shankar could only manage a couple of patchy innings’ against Afghanistan and West Indies.While many have voiced their opinion about replacing Shankar off the line-up with either Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant, Kevin Pietersen is not one of them as he pleaded Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to back the 28-year-old in a tweet. He said:Advertisement “Dear Virat and Ravi (Shastri) — please don’t drop Vijay Shankar,” Pietersen said in a tweet on Saturday. “I think he’s coming into his own and would potentially win you tomorrow’s game.”Pietersen also voiced his concern about Pant being thrown away right into the World Cup mix. He added:Advertisement “Don’t think about Pant. He needs another three weeks preparation before I think he can get into your World Cup side.”Check out the tweet below:Read Also:  Advertisementlast_img read more
