Neymar has angrily denied reports he has been pleading for a dramatic return to Barcelona .
The Paris Saint-Germain forward has struggled to settle in the French capital since moving for £200million 18 months ago.
He has repeatedly been linked with a move back to the La Liga champions.
Reports this week suggested he had enlisted his father to contact Barcelona directors in a bid to facilitate a move.
But Neymar has since said: “I’m looking at fake calls and fake news, when I’m angry with lies, when false friends come to talk to me and I put on the face that I do not know anything.”On Saturday, PSG stretched their yawning Ligue 1 advantage to 13 points by edging out the 10 men of Amiens 3-0.
Neymar was missing having been allowed two days off to rest.
And though it took a while for the breakthrough to come, Thomas Tuchel was ultimately correct in his assessment that he would not be needed against Amiens, who were ultimately brushed aside as PSG’s imperious domestic form continued.
Not that they had everything their own way until after the break.
Despite PSG’s complete dominantion of possession and with the shots at goal piling up, Amiens provided dogged resistance until just before the hour mark when Edinson Cavani finally broke the deadlock from the penalty spot.
