- Troyes goalkeeper Jessy Moulin hilariously asked Neymar to tell him where he would hit his penalty so that he can become a star
- Neymar dismissed the request and ended up scoring his side’s second goal of the night in a match that ended 2-2
- Moulin wanted to impress his family by saving a penalty from one of the most revered players in football history
Neymar was recently astounded when an opposition goalkeeper asked him where he will place his penalty kick. Troyes goalkeeper Jessy Moulin walked up to Neymar and begged him to tell him where he will hit it so that he can impress his family.
Paris Saint Germain played Troyes over the weekend in a Ligue One match. The game ended 2-2 with one of PSG’s goals coming from the penalty spot.
Kylian Mbappe had been brought down in the penalty area. And when Neymar stepped up to take the resultant penalty kick, Moulin asked him for clues about where he will put his effort.
The Brazilian superstar laughed off the request and ended up scoring. Moulin wanted to impress his family who were watching.
Daily Mail reports that the 36=year-old recounted the hilarious interaction with Neymar
I come to see him and I say, ‘Do you know that if I stop that penalty, I am a star?’
Please tell me at least the side where you are going to shoot. There’s my mum, my dad, my brothers, my wife watching and I wish they were proud of me.
They have, however, recorded three successive draws as pressure mounts on Mauricio Pochettino.
But tables changed when Canadian striker Ike Ugbo halved the deficit before halftime. Florian Tardieu then equalized from the spot to help Troyes pull further away from the relegation battle.
Di Maria shocked by Messi boos
Sports Brief had earlier reported that Lionel Messi is not worried about the boos that he has been subjected to lately by PSG fans.
His teammate both at club and international level Angel Di Maria explained that he couldn’t imagine when the fans whistled the ‘best player in the world.’
Messi hasn’t performed to his usual standards since making the switch from Barcelona to the French capital.
