This is ridiculous.”
Neymar did not hide his shock and anger when he saw the state of lawn maintenance at Azadi Stadium in Iran. On the 4th (Korean time), the British Daily Mail reported, ‘I was shocked to see a video of Neymar manually finishing the incomplete stadium turf in Iran ahead of Al Hilal’s Asian Champions League away game in Iran.’
Brazilian national team striker Neymar received a transfer fee of 78 million pounds from French Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer and wore the Al Hilal uniform. Neymar, who had been unable to play for a long time due to injury, recently improved his physical condition by participating in league games with Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves, and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Just before Al Hilal’s trip to Nasaj Mazandaran (Iran) in the second leg of the Asian Champions League group stage on the 4th, a video was posted on social media of workers inside Azidi Stadium doing last-minute manual work to fill the empty space of the stadium with grass. A scene was captured where people in casual clothes appeared to be gluing grass patches to the concrete floor surface. This is an unimaginable scene for Neymar, who is used to the perfect turf conditions at Barcelona and PSG.
After watching this video, Neymar posted a line on his SNS along with a laughing emoticon saying, ‘This is ridiculous.’
He could not hide his shock at the video that showed him wandering around the stadium and quickly refurbishing the stadium to allow the game to proceed.레모나토토
Azadi Stadium, located in Tehran, Iran, is a famous stadium widely known as the graveyard of away games for Korean fans.
However, Neymar scored a goal to show off even on this extremely poor turf, leading the team to a 3-0 victory. In the Asia Champions League Group D Group D away trip to Mazandaran, Iran, held at 1 a.m. on the 4th, Al Hilal finished 3rd thanks to consecutive goals from Mitrovic in the 18th minute of the first half, Neymar in the 13th minute of the second half, and Saleh Al-Shehri in extra time of the second half. Goal difference and clean sheet victory.
Al Hilal is a renowned Middle Eastern club that has won the Asian Champions League four times. This is a team that won the Asian Championship two years ago and is aiming for greater glory with the addition of Neymar.
Amid rumors that he has an estranged relationship with manager Jorge Jesus Al-Hilal, Neymar has yet to score a goal in three Saudi Pro League games, including his first appearance against Al-Riyadh on the 15th of last month, against Damaq Club on the 21st, and against Al-Shabab on the 29th. On this day, on the worst turf, he scored a goal after transferring to Al Hilal. In the 13th minute of the second half, he neatly cleared Nasser Aldosari’s space pass with his right foot and roared with enthusiasm. His senses were heightened ahead of the match against Al Akhdud on the 8th.
