Neymar: Brazil's World Cup exit left me in mourning

By Mutala Yakubu

Brazil forward Neymar said he "didn't want to see a ball" or watch any of the remaining World Cup matches after his side's quarter-final defeat by Belgium.

"I was in mourning, I was really sad, but sadness passes," the Paris St-Germain player said.

"I have my son, my family, my friends and they don't want to see me moping around."

The 26-year-old also called reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid "all speculation".

Neymar joined PSG for a world record £200m from Barcelona last summer and scored 28 goals in all competitions as the French side completed a domestic treble.

"I can't be the referee and play at the same time, but there are times I wish I could."
