Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti discussed his colleague Neymar's recent comment that the 2022 World Cup could be his last in an interview with Prime Video ahead of tomorrow evening's match against Marseille.

The Italians' remarks on the pressures that footballers undergo follow the Brazilian's remarks on the mental strength needed in football.

“I completely understand it, and I don’t go through a tenth of what he does. We’re asked to behave like normal people, but when we act like normal people we’re criticised for it. We’re told we can’t act like that because we’re footballers. That’s how it always is with footballers.”

“From the outside everyone thinks that we earn a lot of money by playing football. But in the end it’s also a job, it’s not just a game.”
