'I made a mistake'

Neymar begins his message with an apology to his girlfriend, Bruna Biancardi.

Justifying the unjustifiable. I didn't need to. But I need you in OUR life.
I saw how much you were exposed, how much you suffered through it all and how much you want to be by my side. And me by your side. I made a mistake. I was wrong.

However, the footballer also mentions that this is a matter of his private life, and something he wishes to solve privately.

I risk saying that I make mistakes every day, on and off the pitch. But my mistakes in my personal life I solve at home, in my intimacy with my family and friends...
All this hit one of the most special people in my life. The woman I dreamed of following beside me, the mother of my child. It hit her family, which today is my family. It hit her intimacy in such a special moment that is motherhood.

He ends his apology with a message directly addressed to Bruna Biancardi.

Bru, I have already asked you to forgive me for my mistakes, for the unnecessary exposure, but I feel obliged to publicly reaffirm this. If a private matter became public, the apology has to be public.
I can't imagine myself without you. Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will win, our love for each other will strengthen us. Te amo ❤️

This isn't the first time a footballer has had to publicly address rumours of cheating, whether they proved to be true or not, as we can recall the mayhem caused by the revelation of Gerard Piqué's affair, when he cheated on Shakira, who then released a diss track against him, taking her revenge.
