‘Neymar must not cry, we’re not there to have fun with him’

Strasbourg’s Anthony Goncalves did not show any remorse for injuring Neymar during the club’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France. While PSG beat the Ligue 2 side 2-0, Neymar was forced off the pitch in the second half with a foot injury.

After the game PSG released a statement on the Brazilian’s injury, claiming that the forward has injured the same foot that kept him sidelined from February until May. Goncalves, who fouled the forward multiple times, defended his rough tactics of Neymar and was unapologetic when speaking following the match.

“When we are competitors, even if we play PSG” he told Eurosport. “We did not come in as victims, we showed a good face and showed beautiful things. Neymar? That’s his style, he’s a great player but we’re not there to have fun with him, we respond with our weapons and we have colours to defend. We’re not here to joke. So he must not come and cry after.”
