Unai Emery - Without Neymar PSG Is Great, With Neymar PSG Is Better

Paris Saint Germain manager Unai Emery said he is ready to take in the pressure brought in by the €222 Million World Record signing of Neymar, saying it will help the Club achieve more.

The former Sevilla Boss had a season many will tag as a failure, failing to win the Domestic league for the first time in five years and got knocked out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage by Barcelona.

He said after the opening game win against newly promoted Ameins that the team really needs to improve.

"He's a player who will help the club to get a level higher," Emery said. "Without Neymar PSG is a great club but with Neymar it's a little better. A little greater.

"The other players here are also some great players so together we can get better. It's true that the enthusiasm from the fans is even bigger.
"This pressure is welcome, like all positive things. Neymar is there to give the team a little more. Neymar is better for us."

The World record signing Neymar was not given play time in the opening game against Ameins due to late registration which was a result of resistance staged against the signing by La Liga representatives.

"I know that the club did everything possible to get the approval for the player [from the LFP]," Emery added. "Neymar was with the group when we were getting ready for the game.
"We wait until the very last minute to know if he could play. I don't know if in Spain they did everything or not. But I know that PSG did everything possible to have him today on the pitch."

They were victorious in their opening game against Ameins and the manager spent some time to praise his forwards for their goals and build ups.

"It was important for Edinson that he starts to score again," Emery said. "However as I told him, he needs to improve something. Today he scored following a cross-shot after a good control.

"He also gave an assist for Pastore. Another important one for Adrien Rabiot during the first-half. Another one for [Angel] Di Maria. I said assist even if there were no goals in these cases. I spoke a lot with him about what he needs to work on in order to improve. I think today he went a step further."
