Neymar got emotional when talking about the injury that ruled him out of the World Cup, saying that if the knee to his back had been just to the side he “could be in a wheelchair” right now.

 

The Brazil striker cried as he recalled the injury on Thursday. He had to stop talking for several seconds, dropping his head and putting a hand in front of his eyes.

 

Neymar says, “It’s difficult to talk about a move that ended happening in such an important moment of my career.” He says “God blessed” him, preventing a more serious injury.

 

The 22-year-old Neymar complained of the challenge from Juan Camilo Zuniga, but said the Colombian player called to apologize.
