Neymar: "I Didn’t want to see a Ball After Losing to Belgium"

Rio de Janeiro – Brazil superstar Neymar admits that after his nation’s quarter-final defeat to Belgium at the Soccer World Cup he couldn’t look at a ball and didn’t want to see any of the remaining matches.

“I wouldn’t go as far as to say I didn’t want to play again but, I didn’t want to see a ball, or to see any more football played,” 26-year-old Neymar said in an exclusive interview with AFP.  

The Paris Saint Germain forward was talking at his Neymar Praia Grande institute where the Red Bull Neymar Jnr 5’s (five-a-side-soccer) tournament was being played.

Dressed in a sleeveless T-shirt, with his six-year-old son Davi Lucca sat upon his knee, the striker was, however, in a relaxed mood as he explained his post-World Cup blues.

“I was in mourning, I was really sad about it, but sadness passes, I have my son, my family, my friends and they don’t want to see me moping around. I’ve got more reason to be happy than sad,” said Neymar, reflecting on his team’s 2-1 quarter-final defeat to Belgium. 

Asked about reports in Spain linking him with a transfer to Real Madrid the forward said “that’s all speculation from the press.” 

“The guys who come up with these stories seem to know more about my life than I do. I won’t respond to this type of question because nothing happened,” he scoffed. – AFP.
