‘He’s not a good example’ – La Liga chief Javier Tebas admits he is against Neymar’s return to Barcelona

La Liga President Javier Tebas has said that he is hoping that Neymar does not return to Barcelona this summer, as his behaviour is ‘not good for the competition’.

The Brazilian star has been linked with a return to the Nou Camp all summer amid reports he is no longer happy at Paris Saint-Germain after leaving the club for a world-record fee of £198million two years ago.

However, his rumored comeback does not seem to be exciting everyone in Spain with La Liga chief Tebas claiming his antics are not in line with ‘the values’ of the Spanish top flight.

‘I prefer that Neymar does not return to Barca,’ he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

‘We always want to bring great players, but in the case of Neymar that behaviour is not good for the competition because in the end the news is if the player has done this or that.

‘We have worked a lot in La Liga to maintain the values and we don’t want to change the image.’

‘He can be a great player, but the behaviour is very important in the values we transmit in the competition,’ he said.

‘If outside the field the example is not correct, I prefer that he doesn’t return to La Liga because he is not a good example.’

The forward was ruled out of the Copa America with an ankle injury before the start of the tournament.
