PSG star Neymar took to social media to express his frustration through a touching message after being informed that he will be out injured for around a month.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward suffered a grade II tear in the adductor muscle in his left leg during their Coupe de France game against Caen on Wednesday. It means he is likely to miss their round of 16 Champions League tie with Barcelona.
"The sadness is great, the pain is immense and the crying is constant," Neymar posted.
"Once again, I will stop for a while doing what I love the most in life, which is playing football. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable because of my style of play, because I dribble and they constantly hit me.
"I don't know if the problem is me or what I do on the field. It saddens me a lot. It saddens me a lot to hear from a player, coach, commentator or whoever the hell it is, that "you really have to hit him, "he falls", "he cries", "a child", "spoiled" etc.
"It honestly saddens me and I don't even know how much I can bear it. I just want to be happy playing football. NOTHING ELSE."
