Neymar left Brazil's post-match press conference in tears after the 3-1 friendly win over Japan in Lille on Friday.

Brazil coach Tite was moved to defend Neymar following reports this week that the world-record signing has fallen out with PSG manager Unai Emery. Tite's defence of Neymar left the forward on the verge of tears, and he hugged his coach before hurriedly leaving the press conference.

There have also been reports of a rift with manager Unai Emery, according to the Mirror.

But as per the Guardian, Neymar has passionately shot down rumours that he is unhappy at PSG - and insists that he gets on with everybody at the club.

"I had a great welcome. Everyone treated me with care and respect," Neymar said afterwards.

"Any move to a new place of work has difficulties, it takes a while, but it also depends on people at the club to make adaptation quicker. That's what happened to me, I adapted quickly."

"I talked to Tite, this is something that has hurt me little by little," Neymar added. "I don't like made up stories. My trouble is with part of the press. It is not against everyone. It is against those that think they know it all, but they don't. I have no issue with Cavani, no issue with the coach. On the contrary, I came to PSG with his support," Neymar told O Globo following Brazil's win over Japan on Friday.

He continued: "I want to be happy, I did not come to disturb anyone. I know my importance to the team, my role on the pitch. I beg you to stop.

"I have no problem with PSG, what bothers me is the pressure of the press. I'm a guy who likes to win, I like titles and I went to PSG for this. I'm happy. I was happy when I left Barcelona and I'm happy now."

Neymar reportedly walked away from the interview at this point, after becoming visibly emotional with the nature of the questions.

On the pitch, the 25-year-old was the star of the show as Brazil defeated Japan in a friendly in Lille on Friday afternoon.

Brazil ran out easy winners in a game where Neymar both scored and missed from the penalty spot.
