Paris Saint-Germain didn’t go beyond a 2-2 draw with Troyes, at Parc des Princes, last Sunday (8), for the 36th round of Ligue 1, but a specific move caught the attention of everyone who watched the match.
Before the penalty kick, in the 25th minute, the visiting team’s goalkeeper, Jesus Moulin, approached Neymar, who would be the scout, and talked to the Brazilian ace. The archer later revealed that he would have asked for a tip about the corner that the striker would hit, to facilitate his defense and “proud” his family.
“I went up to him and said, ‘Do you know that if I save the penalty, I’ll become a star?’ I asked: ‘please tell me at least which side you are going to hit. My mother, father, brothers and my wife are watching and I would like them to be proud of me'”, said Moulin, with good humor.
The fact made Neymar laugh, but he did not avoid the Parisian goal. Later, Troyes would even get the tie with goals from Ike Ugbo and Florian Tardieu.
“He told me to guess the corner. I asked again, but he didn’t want to say and I stayed in the middle, but he hit very well”, concluded the goalkeeper.
