Paris Saint Germain star Neymar has hit back at the club over the management of a rib injury after making his comeback in the Champions League.
The Brazilian had missed the last four matches for the French giants due to an injury but came back in the Champions League game on Tuesday to hit an equalizer but he wasn’t pleased with how he was forced to play by the club.
"It is hard after four games without playing. It was not my choice not to play, the club took this decision. The club made this decision with the medical team. I wanted to play, I felt good. The club was afraid, and it is I who suffers from it," Neymar said after the game.
Neymar hurt his rib against Montpellier on February 1 and the Brazilian star was in doubt for the trip to Dortmund but he was included in the team.
He did all he could and grabbed an equalizer in the 75th minute after Erling Haaland had put the hosts in the lead; the Norwegian ensuring Dortmund went into the second leg with a one-goal advantage after netting another goal late on for a 2-1 win for the hosts.
The discontent by Neymar has only fueled his return to Barcelona having left Camp Nou in a world-record €222million deal.
Neymar has scored 13 goals in 14 Ligue 1 appearances for leaders PSG this term and netted 16 goals across all competitions.
