Neymar after his attack: "Nobody likes losing"
Neymar lost his cool again and punched a Rennes fan, an act that could lead to an eight game suspension after losing the final of the French Cup last Saturday.
The Brazilian star admitted his error virtually straight away, saying that 'he has no cockroach blood', but now has returned to reflect on the incident in Instagram and has tried to explain why he reacted this way.
"Nobody likes to lose... anyone who knows me knows how competitive I am and how much a defeat shakes me. But losing is part of an athlete's life, it makes us grow, it makes us think, it makes us BETTER," Neymar wrote.
"I'm happy to be able to play again, to score goals again and to feel good on the pitch, but the biggest feeling today is sadness," he added.
Days after finding out about his three game suspension for his foul mouthed rant on the match officials in the Champions League defeat to Manchester United... Neymar could now face a lenghtly domestic ban.
