Don’t know him, so don’t care.

That’s the essence of Neymar’s response to DeAndre Yedlin‘s viral response to an incident between the two in Friday’s friendly between Brazil and the USMNT.

Neymar was fouled by Yedlin, the Newcastle United right back, in the first half of Brazil’s 2-0 win.

The American was caught on camera asking the referee, “Did you watch the World Cup?” in a plea for innocence in the wake of the Brazilian’s admitted record of embellishment.

Neymar’s response? Paraphrasing, but, “I don’t have much to say but I feel sorry for him. I don’t know him and so I don’t have any reason to worry about him.”
