Last night, the Paris Saint-Germain had a bad night. Very disappointing on the field, Thomas Tuchel’s men didn’t confirm the hopes seen against Manchester United, Montpellier and Istanbul Basaksehir. But yesterday, the Parisians were especially touched by the exit on stretcher of Neymar after an uncontrolled tackle of Thiago Mendes. While waiting to find out more about the Brazilian’s injury, the Olympique Lyonnais midfielder was quick to apologise publicly.
“Good evening everyone, I have come to apologise to Neymar. I hope he is well. I had no intention of hurting him. We know that Neymar is one of the best players in the world. Like all Brazilian people, I admire his football. I hope there is nothing serious and that he can recover quickly and bring joy to the fans. I reiterate my flattest and most sincere apologies,” he said in a video posted on Instragram.
