Thiago Mendes, the name who caused Neymar to be grounded in pain in the last minute of the match in which Lyon defeated PSG 1-0 last week, said he received death threats.
In his statement, the Brazilian player expressed his apologies on the subject on his Instagram account and said, “I offer my sincere apologies for causing Neymar’s injury. I hope our country will recover quickly and show its best football to Brazil and its fans again. “I and my family even received death threats from social media, but I had no idea of trying to cripple Neymar,” he said.
