The soap opera Andy Delort – Neymar Junior is not over. But after episodes placed under the theme of tension, provocation and irony, the series takes on the appearance of a fairy tale. Five days before going to the Parc des Princes to face the PSG there, the Montpellier striker unveiled this Sunday morning in the show “Téléfoot” the “normalization” of his relations with the one who, not long ago, seemed nevertheless to be one of his best enemies.
After having mentioned “Paris and this bonus match against a team above the others” which would give, according to him, an “exceptional” character to a good result brought back from the Park, the Hérault striker (9 goals, 6 assists), did not need to kick in touch at the mention of his reunion with the Brazilian.
“We laughed on the pitch”
“With Neymar, it’s okay, we got carried away, it made me laugh what he did, he explained in reference to the photo posted by the Brazilian and Paredes holding, all smiles, a Delort jersey. We laughed on the pitch too and today we’re fine. “
Relations between the two men had deteriorated at the end of 2019. In the corridors of the Mosson, the Montpellier had criticized the Brazilian for sleeping and asked him for more “respect”. In January, just before the return match, Delort had driven home the point that “the worst in Paris is Paredes. “” It’s amazing how he talks. He insults everyone on the pitch. And yet, his name is Paredes, not Neymar… ”he said on RMC.
In September, just before the first clasico of the season between a Paris affected by the coronavirus and OM, Delort had again addressed the subject on the Téléfoot channel. “I do not know if my two friends from Paris will play, he said, specifying that he was talking about Neymar and his bodyguard Paredes, but I hope that OM will win anyway. “
