Unai Emery, who is set to depart PSG after being unable to hand the success in Europe has admitted that truly the main man at the club was Brazil superstar Neymar whom he bought from Barcelona for a world-record €222million last summer.
Unai also opened up saying:
“One day, Jorge Valdano [former Real Madrid sporting director] made me think by saying the following: ‘In Barcelona, the leader is Lionel Messi. At Real, it is [president] Florentino Perez. At Atletico Madrid, it is [coach] Diego Simeone.’
“So, a player, a president and a coach – each time, a different leadership profile. I know when I am the main person responsible for a squad and when I am not. It is something that you learn with time and through experience. At each club, you must know which role you occupy and what role the squad has entrusted you with.
“My opinion is that the PSG leader is Neymar. Or, more precisely, will be called Neymar because he is in the process of becoming that,” Emery said.
