During the press conference before the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Neymar praised the Saudi Pro League. The former PSG star affirmed that the No. 1 Arab tournament at this time is even more outstanding than Ligue 1 – one of the top 5 European national leagues in the world.
“If you look at the faces joining football teams in Saudi Arabia this summer, you can see This tournament is now better than Ligue 1. Anyone who looks down on the Saudi Pro League will watch this tournament soon,” the Brazilian striker expressed confidence.
Before that, rookie Al Hilal did not hesitate to compare his time at his old team PSG to hell.
“Me and Messi lived like hell in Paris. We came to Paris to give our all and become champions, trying to make history. That’s why Messi and I started playing together again.” We went there to make history together. Unfortunately, we couldn’t do that.”
It is known that Neymar is still unable to make his Al Hilal debut due to injury, confirming that his wish is to return to Santos, the club where he made his name: “I wish to return to play for Santos. I do not I don’t know when but I will definitely come back.”
