French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain came face to face against their French league rival Lyon this weekend. The highly-anticipated match ended in a 1-0 score in favor of PSG. However, Brazilian sensation Neymar faced a tragic injury in his ankle. He had to leave the ground in tears after a miss-timed challenge from the Lyon defender, Thiago Mendes.
The Lyon defender received a Red card after a VAR decision by the referee. Neymar suffered excruciating pain right after the tragic crash with Mendes. He has soon left the ground on a stretcher. However, a scan on his ankle recently revealed that the injury is actually a heavy strain rather than a fracture. And for that, the Brazilian star believes that it is God who saved him from more serious injury.

While talking about the divine intervention during his tragic injury, the Brazilian star Neymar wrote, “It could have been worse, but once again God saved me from something serious. My cry was of pain, despair, fear, anguish, surgery, crutches, and other horrible memories.” The star then further said, “I hope to recover and return as quickly as possible.”
The Brazilian star’s dad also showed his concern as he said, “Damn… how much longer? We have spoken about this so much, we have so underlined the excess of violence.” The worried dad then added, “Why not stop it at the beginning, with the first foul, why wait until the seventh, eighth, ninth foul?”

Neymar’s father then talked about the required measure and said, “We are not taking the necessary measures throughout the whole game, where Neymar suffered the usual rotation of fouls, and always violent ones.” He then further added, “This encourages these types of players and attitudes. If this sort of thing is allowed to continue, football will really lose a lot.”
The senior Neymar then accused the incident while saying “For how much longer will the victim be the one at fault?” He then also talked about the bad referring decision during the match and said, “It is up to the person who controls the match, the person who has the opportunity to protect… ahh…” He finally talked about his son and added, “What can we do? I hope that God looks after you.”
