Neymar Finally Speaks Out About 'Diving'

By SL International - Jul 22, 2018 12:30 PM

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has been widely criticised for going to ground too easily, but the Brazilian has now hit back at his critics.

During Brazil's 2018 World Cup, various players and ex-footballers were critical of the Selecao forward for play acting on numerous occasions.

However, the 25-year-old has now hit back at those accusations and says he is on the end of a lot of painful tackles.

"I saw [the jokes] but I took them with humour," Neymar was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

"Even yesterday I posted on Instagram a joke with the children about it.

"My football is to dribble, to face the opponent. I can't stand in front of the opponent and say, 'My dear, excuse me, I want to score a goal'.

"I can't do that, I have to dribble past him, I have to try to do something and he will not allow me to go past and he will try to foul me.

"A lot of times I'm faster and lighter than other players and they tackle me, and the referee is there for that.

"Do you think I want to suffer tackles all the time? No, it's painful, it hurts. After the games I stay back four or five hours putting on ice.

"It's complicated but if you haven't experienced that you will never understand."
