“Losing hurts,” Neymar said in his post. “It’s something I still haven’t learnt to live with.
“Yesterday, when I lost, I went to hug the greatest and best in history that I have ever seen play. My friend and brother Messi. I was sad and told him ‘you son of a bitch, you beat me.’
“I am incredibly sad for having lost, but this guy is fucking badass! I have an enormous respect for what he did for football and mainly for me.
“I hate losing! But enjoy your title, football was waiting for you to have this moment! Congratulations brother, you son of a bitch.”
