Neymar believes Paris Saint-Germain are more ready than ever to win the Champions League.
Paris Saint-Germain have the “experience” and “quality” to win the Champions League this year, according to star signing Neymar.
As the Ligue 1 favourites prepare to begin their Champions League group stage away to Celtic, Neymar has emphasised that the time is now for the Champions League trophy to return to Paris.
Speaking to ‘SunSport’, the Brazilian international emphasised the importance of the Champions League to the PSG project.
“One of my biggest reasons for joining PSG was to help the club write history.
“The Champions League is not the only trophy we want to win — but it is a very important trophy.
“The aim this season is to try and win it, that is the level the club are now at. I do believe we are capable of winning the tournament.
“Not only do we have the quality but we have the experience — the players who know what it takes to win the Champions League. I have won the tournament, Dani Alves has won it three times, Thiago Motta has won it at Barcelona and Inter, Angel Di Maria has won it with Real Madrid.
“We not only have quality, but real experience.”
Neymar has made a fierce start to life in Ligue 1, boasting four goals and four assists in four appearances. Both of his previous appearances at Celtic Park saw him on the winning side with Barcelona, and he will hoping for more of the same following his £198m move.
