Neymar is back and delivering on the pitch, but he still has his work cut out to get Paris Saint-Germain supporters back onside following his failed summer move to Barcelona.

PSG, who face Reims in Ligue 1 at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday evening, operated under a cloud throughout the summer with the future of one of their marquee players shrouded in uncertainty.

The Brazilian missed the Ligue 1 champions’ first five games as he pushed for a return to Barcelona, but the deal fell through after protracted talks.

“It is not the first time I have been booed by everyone,” Neymar told reporters after PSG’s win against Strasbourg. “It is sad but I know that, from now on, every game I play will be an away game.”

“I made it clear I have nothing against the fans, nothing against Paris Saint-Germain as a club,” he added. “Everyone knows I wanted to leave. I am not going to get into the details of what happened.

“It is time to turn the page. Today I am a PSG player and I am going to give everything on the field.”
