PSG midfielder admits Neymar and Mbappe get special privileges

  • Neymar and Mbappe have PSG privileges says Rabiot

He joined the French outfit in the summer for a world-record €222m move from Barcelona and has lived in the spotlight since his arrival. But instead of showing generosity and letting Cavani take a penalty, Neymar guarded the ball and blanked his teammate when he approached.

Brazil playmaker Neymar fired home the game's only goal midway through the second half and twice hit the woodwork as Unai Emery's side registered their 14th win in their last 15 games in all competitions.

"He's just a leader who wants to win".

PSG were inches away from making the final scoreline more comfortable, but Neymar drilled a shot against the post and floated a curler on to the top of the crossbar.

In their quest for global dominance, Paris Saint-Germain broke the bank - well, not quite, because in this case the bank is a bottomless pit - to sign Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

"Madrid and Barcelona wanted Kylian, but PSG have the muscle to keep him at a French club and I think the transfer happened for sporting reasons and not financial ones, and that's something new in this new European order", Emery told Spanish newspaper Marca in an interview published on Thursday.

Rabiot, however, revealed that the ex-Santos wonderkid is anything but arrogant in the PSG dressing room in spite of his world-class ability and sees the attacker as one of the good guys.

Alban Lafont made a spectacular save to deny Presnel Kimpembe in the fifth minute, the PSG defender turning Neymar's low cross into the goalkeeper's chest from point-blank range. It's not an issue now.

Lassana Diarra came in for his first start in the league, while Emery elected to also rest captain Thiago Silva ahead of the visit to the Bernabeu.

"It's huge for us, for the players for the supporters, we'll be up against a great team in a great stadium".

Adrien Rabiot, Giovani Lo Celso and January acquisition Lassana Diarra played in a midfield three at the Stadium Municipal.

"Club officials are obviously the main people responsible for creating the possibility for players to have too much power", he said.
