Injured Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has praised the efforts of his team-mates, after they were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, PSG conceded the first goal in Paris, as Cristiano Ronaldo thumped home a header in the second half.
Although Javier Pastore pulled one back, Casemiro sealed a 2-1 win for the holders with a deflected effort.
Despite the loss, the Brazilian who is recovering from surgery on the broken metatarsal, expressed his pride in the players’ efforts.
He wrote on Twitter: “I am sad for defeat, much sadder for not being in the field helping my companions!!
“What makes me proud is to see everyone’s effort. Congratulations my guys, ALLEZ PARIS.”
PSG are now fighting for only domestic honours this season.
They sit atop Ligue 1, are in the Coupe de la Ligue final and the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.
