Neymar reportedly wants Al-Hilal manager Jorge Jesus to be fired after the two clashed after their team’s frustrating 1-1 draw against Uzbekistan side Navbahor Namangan last week.
Neymar joined the Saudi Pro League side after six turbulent seasons at PSG for a staggering 90 million euros, joining other stars who made the move to the Middle Eastern country.
According to Sport, Jesus was not impressed by Neymar’s “bad attitude” on the pitch. He criticized him, and the Brazilian was not happy.
Following that heated interaction, Neymar reportedly asked for Jesus to be fired as coach. Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reports that Jesus was warned that if results don’t improve in the near future, Neymar’s contract will be terminated.
The 31-year-old has made three appearances for Al-Hilal since joining them last month. He has yet to score, but he has provided two assists.
In seven games this season, Al-Hilal have won five and drawn two, and sit second on the table. They narrowly lost the Arab Club Champions Cup earlier last month to 10-man Al-Nassr.
