Barcelona forward Neymar has utilised his personal Instagram account to lash out at former Brazilian club Santos for their accusations of his father over the player’s move to Spain.
Ex-Santos president Luis Álvaro Oliveira (LAOR) accused Neymar’s father for organising his son’s transfer to Barcelona behind the club’s back and without their consent.
"With this type of people, that bastard (referring to Neymar's father), it's useless to argue through the media. Everything will have to be proven in court,” Oliveira was quoted as saying in Spanish publication Marca.
Yet the Brazilian forward was quick to respond to Oliveira’s accusations, using his personal Instagram account to vent his anger at his former employees.
"Once again I am taking the liberty of talking about an issue that has now gone too far,” Neymar posted.
“Today I understand why Ganso left Santos - it was because of its directors! I am very disappointed with the ex-president, LAOR, and also with the present one, Odilio [Rodrigues]. Mainly LOAR. After what he has said about my father, I have lost all respect for him."
Neymar vehemently defended his father’s actions, saying he did nothing wrong.
"So much rubbish, so much talk! If he thought my father was stupid he's very wrong. I thank my father for helping me get where I am and if he has earned millions from it, what's the problem?
“He worked for it, he didn't wait for it to fall out of the sky. Sorry, Santos fans, but two or more people are not going to change the affection I feel for SFC."
