Neymar has admitted Barcelona will always have a place in his heart but now must ‘concentrate’ on his new career at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazilian forward moved to the Parisians in a €222m move over summer and finished third in FIFA’s World Best Player for 2017 behind Cristiano Ronaldo and former Barca teammate Lionel Messi.
“I will always have Barcelona in my heart,” Neymar is quoted as telling reporters by Marca ahead of the gala.
“I enjoyed a fantastic season with the club and I can never forget that, but we must now move on and concentrate on our things.
“The awards? It’s important to be here alongside the best players.
“The red card at Marseille? It should not have happened, it was not a football again and I should not have fallen into that trap and the error won’t happen again.”
