​Former Barcelona superstar Neymar has publicly criticized his club Paris Saint-Germain for their 'unfair' treatment of close friend and fellow Brazilian Lucas Moura, after the winger was 'forced' out of the Paris based club.

The electric Brazilian winger sealed his departure from PSG on deadline day in a ​£25m move to Tottenham Hotspur, but it seems all isn't too rosy in the French capital as PSG's star man, Neymar, isn't too happy with the treatment his close friend received upon leaving the French club.


When quizzed about the departure of his close friend Neymar, who undoubtedly has been PSG's star man since his arrival from Spanish giants ​Barcelona, admitted that he felt Moura wasn't treated fairly by the club.

"I'm sad, because he's a good friend, he's a quality player who was rarely used, I think it's very unfair. He is my brother in football. I wish him the best. I hope he will score a lot and he will return to the Brazilian national team," Neymar told reporters (via Goal).


Lucas, who has amassed 36 caps for the Brazilian national team, was yet to start a single Ligue 1 match this season and was limited to only six appearances in all competitions under Spanish coach Unai Emery.

"He's not just a friend, he's a very good guy. Here he could have been used a lot more but I'm not the owner of the team, not the owner of Paris. For me, he should never have left Paris," Neymar continued.


Neymar, who sat out Paris Saint-Germain's French Cup clash with FC Sochaux - 48 hours after hosting a lavish birthday bash - continued to express his sadness towards the decision by stating his exiled friend was 'good enough' to start for the capital side.

In light of this criticism Paris Saint-Germain and Unai Emery will be hoping the criticism from Neymar won't have too much of an influence on the rest of the squad given their crunch ties with defending Champions League champions, ​Real Madrid, being just around the corner.
