Neymar said he "lived through hell" alongside former teammate Lionel Messi during their time together at Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar told Globo's Esporte Espetacular in an interview given in June that aired on Sunday: "I was very happy for the year he had, but at the same time very sad, because he lived both sides of the coin. He went to heaven with the Argentina team, won everything in recent years, and with Paris he lived hell, we lived through hell, both he and I."

Messi found it difficult to adapt to Paris and admitted in June that there was a "fracture with a significant group of the PSG fans" during his two seasons at the club.
