Fekir More Special Than Neymar–Lyon President

Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has said that Nabil Fekir is more of a special player than Neymar as the Ligue 1 leaders tackle Les Gones on Sunday at Groupama Stadium.

While Neymar has scored 15 times in France’s top flight since joining for a world-record €222m from Barcelona in August, Fekir also has 15 goals to his credit this term.

Aulas the outspoken club President said that he will never swap the France international who has banged in the same number of goals with the Brazil superstar.

“I was already watching PSG without Neymar, inevitably he brings something more,” he told Le Figaro.

“I prefer Nabil to Neymar. Do not put that in the title because Neymar will want to prove the opposite on Sunday against us!

“Nabil is our little Neymar. And [Bertrand] Traore looks a lot like Neymar in his dribbling, his way of accelerating.

“We are not outdone at OL[Lyon], with our means.”

Lyon lie third and 11 points adrift of PSG in the Ligue 1 table going into Sunday’s clash.
