Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has insisted that while he was in a lot of pain and stress after Brazil were eliminated in the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup in Russia, he won't be mourning over it for the rest of his life.
The Selecao were tipped to be one of the hot favourites to lift the World Cup in Russia, but were convincingly knocked out by a highly motivated Belgium side.
Marca report that while speaking ahead of PSG's UEFA Champions League game against Red Star Belgrade, Neymar talked up the World Cup, possibly for the final time as he said, "I did everything possible to be with Brazil at the World Cup."
He continued, "I gave my best, but I'm frustrated with this competition. I won't whine for the rest of my life, as I have more reasons to be happy than to be sad nowadays."
The Brazilian was then questioned about what he thinks is his favourite position on the field to which he replied, "I like playing as a No.10 because I can control the game and help my colleagues. I didn't ask [to be put at] this position and the coach preferred to put me there."
Speaking about his Santos and Barcelona days while pointing out he does not want to be compared to Lionel Messi, Neymar concluded, "I play in the same way I played at Santos and Barcelona, creating chances and shooting too, but at the PSG I play in a bit of a different way, although I like touching the ball. I don't want any comparisons with Lionel Messi."
Neymar will spearhead PSG's attack as they take on Red Star on Wednesday evening in the Champions League.
