The star of the European runner-up shed a tear and won the celebrations after ousting Bayern Munich: "My contract extension at the club is no longer an issue to talk about" • Owner Al Khalafi: "Neymar and Ambape have no excuse to leave, but nothing is over yet" • Di Maria : "Life has become happy"
Neymar celebrates on the grass.
No longer thinks any Barça
City of Lights is celebrating.
The reigning champions Bayern Munich beat PSG 0-1 at the Parc des Princes last night (Tuesday), but the French are the ones to be in the semi-finals for the second time in a row thanks to the 2: 3 in Germany last week.
Today (Wednesday) evening PSG will reveal who their rival is in the semi-finals: Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund, but even before that in Paris they set out to celebrate a second consecutive qualification for the top four in Europe.
At the end of the game, it was hard to miss the excitement of Neymar, who may have been responsible for four misses of hair rivets in the first half, but after being selected as the game’s standout, also led the celebrations in the locker room along with Killian Ambape.
PSG have become the third French team to qualify for the semi-finals twice in a row, a good time for Neymar's statements.
"I feel at home here and I am very comfortable. I am happier than before," the Brazilian star declared. "Extending my contract at the club is no longer an issue that needs to be talked about. I am happier than Paris than ever."

On 180 minutes of football against a particularly high-quality team, the Brazilian added: "We met a great team and managed to oust the European champions. Now we hope to have success in the semi-finals as well. We are a great team and we are left to dream as much as possible."
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser El Khalafi also did not hide his happiness: "We have invested a lot in the team to win the Champions League and all the possible titles so Neymar and Ambape have no reason to leave our club. There are no excuses to leave. I think Neymar will stay with us in Paris for a while "It's very long. The secret is always hard work. It's not over yet. We have to keep going, now we have to stay calm, because the Champions League is not over."
Hey, do you know what?

Angel Di Maria summed up the big night of Paris: "We worked especially hard, and it came to us. Life outside is not always easy, but the night with football things have become something special. I'm just happy."
