Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has apologised publicly after cheating on his partner, Bruna Biancardi.
The Brazil international said he could not imagine his life without his partner and has already spoken to her.
The partners are looking forward to welcoming their first child this year, having announced their pregnancy earlier this summer.
The two have been together for a few months and had a ‘wavering’ start to the relationship, as per the Brazilian footballer.
The Brazil international took to Instagram to publicly apologise after the texts were posted on the platform.
“I made a mistake. I made a mistake with you. I dare say that I make mistakes every day, on and off the pitch. But I solve my mistakes in my personal life at home, in my intimacy with my family and my friends,” he said.
“Bru, I have already apologized for my mistakes, for the useless exposure, but I feel obliged to reaffirm it publicly. If a private matter has gone public, the apology should be made public.
“I can’t imagine myself without you. I don’t know if it will work between us, but TODAY you can be sure that I want to try. Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will prevail, our love for each other will strengthen us.”
