Neymar Apologises For Brazil Rant

FC Barcelona superstar Neymar has apologised for a recent rant aimed at the Brazil national team's supporters.

The Selecao lost 1-0 to Peru on Monday courtesy of a controversial goal, and Neymar later leapt to his teammates' defence from in an Instagram post, complete with some explicit language.

Having received flack in the media and from supporters since, the Brazilian star has now apologised for the language used.

"My five minutes in Brazil were enough to realise that my post/outflow on Instagram had a negative repercussion, huge around here," he wrote, translated from Portuguese, on Instagram.

"What I've heard from people who met me at the airport was that I had 'exceeded' myself... I admit...Yes, I overreacted.

"Apologies to all of those who felt offended, it's the least I can do. I wrote all of that after the end of the match against Peru and got really upset with the elimination and angry with the words I had heard and read towards those athletes. After all, I'm part of that group.

"There is a small portion that also overreacts with the microphone or a pen in hands, but like I said, a small portion. I aimed at a dozen and hit thousands, millions."

Meus cinco minutos no Brasil foram suficientes para perceber que meu post/desabafo no Instagram tinha tido uma repercussão negativa, gigante por aqui. O que ouvi das pessoas que me receberam no aeroporto foi que eu "me excedi"... Admito... Sim, eu "me excedi. PEDIR DESCULPAS a todos os que se sentiram ofendidos é o mínimo que posso fazer. Escrevi aquilo após o resultado do Brasil contra o Peru, e fiquei muito chateado com a eliminação e revoltado com as palavras que ouvi e li dirigidas aqueles atletas, afinal sou parte daquele grupo. Há uma minoria que também "se excede" com o microfone ou a caneta em mãos, mas como disse, é uma minoria. Mirei em meia dúzia e acertei em milhares, milhões... Acabei de ler um artigo do Renato Rodrigues, da ESPN, com o título 'Neymar expôs o "nós contra eles", que não é bom para ninguém no futebol brasileiro'. Concordo com ele. Essa discussão não é boa para o nosso futebol e sem querer caí na armadilha. A camisa amarela é muito vitoriosa e para voltarmos a vencer precisamos estar juntos e principalmente nos respeitarmos e conhecermos as dificuldades uns dos outros. E no meu post faltei com o respeito com todos, jornalistas e fãs. Agora é pedir desculpas e seguir em frente, aproveitar o restante de minhas férias e daqui a pouco começar a preparação para as Olimpíadas. É o nosso objetivo agora.
