The Brazilian has added fuel to the flames of transfer talk linking him with a Barca return by fondly remembering the humiliation of his current team.
Neymar has ensured an interesting reception when he belatedly returns to France next week by claiming that one of his favourite memories in football was beating Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 with Barcelona.
The Brazilian, constantly linked with a return to Spain this summer, has already irked PSG officials by missing the start of pre-season training to attend a charity event with Instituto Neymar, the foundation he set up in 2013.
Speaking at the event, Neymar was asked for his best memory from his football career to date. He had two: winning Olympic gold with Brazil in 2016, and humiliating his current club with the infamous 6-1 comeback in 2017.
“When we won against PSG with Barcelona it was completely… we all went crazy afterwards,” Neymar said.
“I believe it was the best feeling for all of us.
“The ‘Remontada’ against Paris, what we felt when we scored the sixth goal… I have never felt anything like this. It was incredible!”
Neymar scored twice in that game, a stunning free kick in the 88th minute and a penalty in the 91st to bring Barca to within touching distance of one of the most memorable comebacks of all time.
