Neymar played brilliantly against Atalanta for Paris Saint-Germain and received appreciation from Gian Piero Gasperini.
Gasperini said Neymar once again proved his class during the Champions League win over Atalanta at Paris Saint-Germain.
To beat Atalanta 2-1 in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, PSG created an impressive late comeback on Wednesday.
Neymar set up Marquinhos’ equalizer before to cancel Mario Pasalic’s opener in the 90th minute, three minutes later Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting struck the winner.
Atalanta head coach Gasperini has praised the success of Neymar at Lisbon’s Estadio da Luz.
“He is a player we paid a lot of attention to because we saw that as soon as he had a little space, he would become very dangerous,” he told a news conference (via Youtube).
“Neymar is a great football player, a crack. And he proved it [again] as well, even though I believe we managed to limit him quite often.”
“However, he proved he is a top player.”
