VIDEO: Neymar punches fan in altercation after PSG’s cup final defeat
Neymar isn’t having a great week. And it appears he is doing his best to not play for Paris Saint-Germain again.
Following PSG’s defeat on penalty kicks to Rennes in the French Cup final on Saturday, Neymar was shown walking up the stairs with his teammates to collect his runners up medal.
A fan then walked towards Neymar and words were exchanged, which resulted in the Brazilian superstar throwing a punch and connecting with the individual. Le Equipe say that the fan has made an official complaint about the punch from Neymar, while it is believed that the fan insulted both Gianluigi Buffon and Neymar.
Below is the incident in question, from two angles, as on Friday Neymar was banned for the opening three games of the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League season after being found guilty of verbally abusing officials.
This punch coupled with the ban and his comments that he’d like to play with Eden Hazard all points to one thing: Neymar wants out at PSG.
With injuries keeping him out for a large chunk of last season and this season, it appears Neymar may have played his final game for Les Parisiens.
