NEYMAR has blasted critics following his latest injury, insisting that the pain is 'immense'.
The Brazilian only recovered from a month-long ankle problem in mid-January.
But he is now back on the treatment table, after hobbling out of Paris Saint-Germain's Coupe de France clash with Caen on Wednesday night.
Upset at the news, particularly as he'll now miss next week's Champions League clash with former club Barcelona, the 29-year-old hit back at critics on Instagram.
He wrote: "The sadness is great, the pain is immense and the crying is constant.
"Once again for a while I will stop doing what I love most in life, which is playing football.
"Sometimes I feel uncomfortable because of my style of play, because I dribble and constantly get hacked, I don't know if the problem is me or what I do on the pitch … it really saddens me.
"It makes me too sad to hear from a player, coach, commentator or whoever else, "he really has to be kicked” “he dives“ "cries" "kid" "spoiled”… etc.
"Honestly it saddens me and I don't know how long I can take it, I just want to be happy playing football. NOTHING ELSE."
Neymar may have been upset by some fans bringing up the 'curse' of his sister's birthday, with the forward often seeming to miss games at this time of year.

In 2015, he picked up a suspension for acquiring too many yellow cards – with the same also happening the very next year, enabling him to attend sister Rafaella's Disney-themed party.
Injuries then ruled him out in 2017, 2018 and 2019, although he was still able to party back in Brazil.
After watching him limp off the field on Wednesday night, some fans believed he is up to his old tricks.
One said: "Ahh the annual Neymar injury that always happens before his sister's birthday."
Another added: "I hope the festivals in Brazil and his sister's birthday are worth it, speedy recovery for sure."
A third joked: "There are 3 things certain in life. Death, taxes and Neymar being injured on his sister's birthday."
