As Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar prepares to return, he says he is training harder than him at the Ligue 1 club.

PSG became League 1 champions after the season was canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic, they are also in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the final of the Coop de France and the Coop de la League.

Neymar, 23, has been at home in Brazil for two months amid the CEVID-19 crisis, which has killed more than 306,000 people worldwide.

But Brazil International, led by its physical trainer, Ricardo Rosa, is working hard.

Neymar said on his website, “I’m training hard at the club with the same rhythm and frequency as I would at the club. Giving more training with more agility to make up for the lack of games,” Neymar said.

“The purpose is to be ready for him when they signal a return to club activities, so that I can be in the best possible condition.

“Of course I’m missing the competition, but Rica made a plan that I’m following in line.”

Neymar has scored 18 goals in 22 games for PSG this season, but has been linked with a return to Barcelona.
