Neymar posts emotional message after being ruled out of Barcelona clash: ‘I’m getting assaulted constantly’

PSG superstar Neymar has taken to social media on Thursday, to post an emotion-filled message, after being confined to the sidelines once again.

Kean on target

Mauricio Pochettino’s men made the trip to the Stade Michel d’Ornano on Wednesday night, for a French Cup meeting with Caen.

The capital giants headed into proceedings as overwhelming favourites to book their spot in the competition’s last-32, with their hosts languishing in mid-table in Ligue 2.

When all was said and done 24 hours ago, though, whilst PSG did manage to advance, they were made to work by Pascal Dupraz’s outfit.

A solitary goal proved all that separated the sides upon the full-time whistle sounding, as Moise Kean kept alive the French champions’ hopes of retaining their crown:

‘The crying is constant’

PSG’s latest win, however, came at a cost.

On the hour mark, star man Neymar was forced to depart the action in Normandy, after picking up a fresh fitness issue.

In turn, on the back of the clash coming to a close, the Brazilian’s boss was quick to jump to the defence of his key attacker, hinting that Neymar was targeted by Caen’s players:

And, as outlined above, on Thursday, the 29-year-old has himself taken to social media, to relay a similar, albeit considerably more emotional message.

This comes after word was forthcoming this evening that Neymar has suffered a ‘a lesion to the left adductor’, and will therefore be out of action for around 4 weeks.

This will see the Brazilian miss not only a crucial stretch of his side’s domestic season, but also one, or potentially both of PSG’s Champions League last-16 meetings with former club Barcelona.

In turn, in a post on his official Instagram account a short time ago, Neymar made clear his evident sadness, explaining:

‘The sadness is great, the pain is immense and the crying is constant.’

‘Once again I will stop doing what I love most in life for a while, which is playing football.’

‘Sometimes I feel uncomfortable due to my style of play, because I dribble and end up getting assaulted constantly.’

‘I don’t know if the problem is me or what I do on the field … it really saddens me.’

‘It makes me so sad to have to hear from a player, coach, commentator or the f****** No.4 (referring to a Caen player) ‘he really has to be beaten’ ‘falls down’ ‘crying’ ‘kid’ ‘spoiled’ and etc …’

‘Honestly it saddens me and I don’t know how long I can take it, I just want to be happy playing football. THAT’S IT.’
