PSG frontman, Neymar is unhappy with the club for limiting his time on the pitch this season due to injury after scoring in the Champions League Round of 16 this week.
The 28-year-old started just his second game of this calendar year on Tuesday as PSG were beaten 2-1 by Borussia Dortmund.
Neymar has been sidelined by a number of injuries this season and has made just 19 appearances in all competitions.
But the Brazilian trickster insists it has not been his choice to sit on the sidelines in recent weeks, claiming the French champions were “afraid” to risk playing him.
“It was not my choice not to play the last matches,” Neymar said after the defeat in Dortmund. ”I wanted to play, I felt good.
“The club was afraid and it is I who suffer from it.”
