‘Toulouse would run on Neymar fee for 15 years’

Toulouse manager Pascal Dupraz has claimed that the colossal transfer fee Paris Saint-Germain paid to sign Neymar would be enough to run his club for 15 years.

The Parisians coughed up £198m for the Brazilian superstar, who scored in his debut for the club against Guingamp last Sunday, but despite the fee, Dupraz believes the former Barcelona man is good for Ligue 1.

"Neymar, all-inclusive, represents 15 years of operation of Toulouse," he told Le Parisien.

"The signature of Neymar is a benefit for French football. I am neither envious nor jealous."

Toulouse are set to face PSG on Sunday, and Dupraz is looking forward to the occasion and the honour of being part of it.

"[Sunday's match] is a chance to play PSG, to play in Ligue 1, especially when we are the youngest team in France," he added.

"It's a chance for me to sit on the bench for Toulouse at the Parc des Princes. It is an honour. The goal is to win."
