PSG Star Neymar Speaks On Diving Criticism

PSG forward, Neymar has spoken on criticism directed at him with regards to diving.

The Brazilian believes people 'will never understand'.

Neymar was critised frequently during the 2018 World Cup in Russia for his reactions to tackles and some suggest he was diving and faking pain.

Now, He has responded to critics and tried to explain why he's often on the floor and on the receiving end of many fouls.

"Do you think I want to suffer tackles all of the time? No, it is painful, it hurts," he said.

"After the games I stay back for four or five hours putting on ice, it's complicated but if you haven't experienced that you will never understand. I saw [the jokes], but I took them with a humour.

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

Neymar's future at PSG has been unclear for weeks but recently at an event in Brazil, he revealed plans to stay at the French club.

But Real Madrid are still in search of a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club for Juventus.

Although, Los Blancos have denied reports of a bid for Neymar twice in recent weeks, but anything can what? Happen!
