It was reported that the Paris Saint-Germain stars turned on Neymar after the Brazilian clashed in the dressing room with the club’s sporting director, Luis Campos. The French Ligue 1 champions suffered a bad week after being knocked out of the French Cup by Marseille and lost by Monaco before facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Neymar has taken a more prominent role in PSG’s squad in recent matches with Kylian Mbappe out with injury. However, he was unable to achieve positive results as his team lost twice in the space of four days.
Now, it appears that the Parisian dressing room is not a harmonious place according to reports from France. Neymar had a huge argument with sporting director Campos after Monaco’s loss according to L’Equipe with the 58-year-old criticizing the PSG players for their lack of aggression. He was joined by club captain Marquinhos in voicing his grievances.
However, not all of the dressing room seemed to be on his side after he was rubbed the wrong way by the former Barcelona star. Neymar is said to have used harsh words about some of his teammates, with 20-year-old striker Hugo Ektaek being one of the worst affected.

“This morning we had to create and reshape the line-up in terms of the health of some players. The team that lined up had a very different look than usual. We thought about the squad but we had to adjust it because some couldn’t start.
“There is no room for doubt, but there is a note that cannot be hidden in the current circumstances. It will be a very important match against a Bayern Munich team that is recovering. We have to talk less, work more and be fair with our analysis.”
