Neymar has been banned, again, as the Brazilian has continued to lash out literally and figuratively.

Paris Saint-Germain’s forward has been handed a three-game ban (with a further two suspended) after he hit a fan following their French Cup final defeat to Rennes. PSG will appeal the decision, but Neymar is now getting a reputation as someone who is bringing the law into their own hands.

Neymar, 27, reacted to a fan coming close to him as he walked up the steps in the Stade de France, and struck the supporter in the face.

His manager, Thomas Tuchel, condemned Neymar’s actions and after a lengthy spell out with a foot injury this season, things are starting to turn sour for the former Barcelona star.

This latest incident comes hot on the heels of Neymar being handed a three-game ban by UEFA for next season, after his abusive comments towards match officials following PSG’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 defeat to Manchester United in March.

All in all, it appears Neymar is doing everything he can to fall out with pretty much everyone in Ligue 1 and at Paris Saint-Germain. I wonder why that could be?

Those ‘Neymar to Real Madrid’ rumors aren’t going to disappear anytime soon...
