Neymar: "It Really Makes Me Sad And I Don't Know How Much More Of It I Can Stand."

Neymar has expressed his sadness, pain and frustration in an emotional message on social media after he was ruled out for a month through injury.

The Brazilian forward suffered a grade two tear in the adductor muscle in his left leg during Paris Saint-Germain's Coupe de France clash against Caen on Wednesday night.

It means the 29-year-old will miss PSG's upcoming Champions League round of 16 clash against former club Barcelona next week, as well as Ligue 1 fixtures against Nice, Monaco, Dijon and Bordeaux.

Neymar, who only returned from an ankle injury last month, has since opened up about his latest injury on Instagram.

In a detailed post translated by Spanish publication AS, the former Santos forward spoke about the "sadness" he feels when people call him names, as well as being "constantly hit' during games.

"I'm very sad, the pain is immense," Neymar wrote.

"Once again I will have to stop doing what I love most in life for a while, which is playing football. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable because of the way I play, I dribble and I end up getting fouled constantly.

"I don't know if it's me or what I do on the pitch that is the problem. It really saddens me.

"It makes me sad to hear a player, a coach, a commentator or whoever say "you really have to hit him", "he's a diver", "he's a cry baby", "he's a child", "he's spoiled", etc.

"It really makes me sad and I don't how much more of it I can stand. I just want to be happy playing football and nothing more."

It was a dangerous challenge from defender Steeve Yago that put him out of action in PSG's 1-0 win over Caen on Wednesday night.

It left his manager, Mauricio Pochettino, bemoaning the "lack of protection" given to the Brazilian.

When asked about the incident during his post-match press conference, the Argentine said: "I don't want to take it out on the way the opponent played and the way [Neymar] played his game.

"But I just have the feeling that sometimes there is a lack of protection during matches from refereeing. But it's just a feeling."
