Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar, responds to critics calling him a ‘party visitor’.
The Brazilian has previously been criticized for his physique, and most recently when a photo of him on a yacht over the summer surfaced.
Spain’s AS even called the Brazilian “unfit” after he was knocked out in PSG’s 2-0 win over Reims earlier this season.
But Neymar insists he knows how to take care of himself, because if he didn’t, he wouldn’t have spent 12 years at the top.
Talking to Fui Clear YouTube channelAnd he responded to his critics, saying: “I’m talking about respect because people say: Ah, Neymar doesn’t take care of himself, Neymar is this, Neymar is that.”
“How can one be 12 years old at the top without taking care of themselves? Nobody understands that.”
He continued, “I know how to take care of myself, I have a physical therapist and a physical trainer practically 24 hours with me, for what? Not at all?”
Neymar insists he only goes out when he has no training the next day, and has vowed he won’t stop due to the criticism.

He added, “I get out when I can. I go out when I can, and when I know I won’t train the next day, and I won’t stop doing anything. What’s the problem?”
“You have to judge me for what I do on the field, there I let you speak, but what I do outside.”
Paris Saint-Germain finds itself at the top of both Ligue 1 and the Champions League group.
But the Parisians were far from impressed despite having the front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
Neymar insists the trio will eventually click, but “getting to know each other better” takes time.
“We will get to know each other better and better and we all have to have a great season and win titles,” he said.
