'Neymar Feels Like People Don't Understand Him'

Paris Saint-Germain star Marquinhos has leaped to the defence of teammate Neymar, who recently hinted he might retire from international football after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Neymar surprised the footballing world last week when he suggested that next year's World Cup in Qatar may be his last with the Selecao due to mental health concerns.

A lot of criticism was directed at the PSG superstar after those remarks, but Marquinhos has insisted his countryman's decision is not final.

"People talk a lot, and Neymar feels like they don't understand him," the centre-back told TNT.

"He doesn't know what will happen after the 2022 World Cup, he doesn't know if he will be able to maintain his best form for four more years.

"He is focused on playing football, and he will play next game, God willing.

"We need to have great performances both for PSG and Brazil.

"There is a long journey ahead of us before even thinking about the next World Cup. We need to remain calm and take things step by step."
