Neymar believes that the French champions can return to the Champions League final despite losing the fitie leg of their last-four tie

Neymar says he will do anything to help Paris Saint-Germain beat Manchester City, even if it means that he has to “die on the pitch”.


PSG suffered a 2-1 defeat to City at Parc des Princes in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, which leaves them with a mountain to climb in the second leg at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.

Neymar is optimistic that the French champions can reach their second successive final, however, he has promised to lead from the front in Manchester as Mauricio Pochettino’s side seek to complete an unlikely turnaround.

Speaking after scoring in PSG’s 2-1 win against Lens in Ligue 1 on Saturday, the Brazilian told the club’s official media channel: “The first thing to do now is to rest and then really refocus on the Champions League.

“We had a very tough first leg against Manchester City but we have to believe it no matter what the stats say or our percentage chance of winning.

“I think every Parisian should believe in us! I’m in the front line, and I’ll be the first warrior who goes into battle for the team.

“I will give the best of myself and I will do anything to bring this back no matter what, even if I have to die on the pitch.”
