Neymar’s dad hits back on TV

Neymar’s dad has appeared on Band TV in Brazil in the wake of the rape accusations.

Neymar’s dad has defended his son, saying the whole episode was a “trap”. He continued:

If public opinion is not cleared up, and if we can’t show the truth rapidly, this will snowball. If we have to show Neymar’s WhatsApps and the conversations with this girl, we will.

Following on from his dad’s comments, Neymar has now released a long video on Instagram directly addressing the rape claims.

The caption for the video read: “Because of extortion, I am being forced to expose my life and family”.
