Ghana midfielder Frank ‘Okebo’ Acheampong has thrown his support behind Brazil star Neymar Jr, following his transfer from Barcelona to French giants Paris Saint Germain, describing the deal as a ‘smart’ one.
The 25-year-old completed a five-year world record transfer worth €222 million and was presented to the media in Paris on Friday. The move drew criticisms from several quarters but Acheampong, who recently joined Chinese side Tianjin Teda from Anderlecht in a four-month loan deal worth £1.2 million last month, says the Brazilian has to ‘gather more money’.
“Neymar hasn’t committed any crime after joining PSG from Barcelona. He is a smart guy,” Acheampong told My Base Radio in China.
