Eric Cantona Throws Some Serious Shade At Neymar On Instagram

Eric Cantona has thrown some serious shade at PSG star Neymar on his Instagram story, yet somehow still managed to remain philosophical throughout.

He posted a picture of the Brazilian in the stands and accompanied it with the caption: "Just like the barbecue, you take it out in spring when the sun begins to shine."

One might wonder why Cantona is spending his time savaging Neymar on Instagram but it turns out it is following on from a spat between the entourages of both men at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

French outlet RMC Sport say that the United legend and one of his friends provoked Neymar's family not long after the game, shushing them and generally rubbing in the victory the Red Devils had just achieved.

Neymar's father, Neymar Santos Snr, wasn't happy at all and is said to have headed to next door to Cantona's box but was insulted by one of the Frenchman's pals before he got in.

Security got involved to diffuse the situation and Cantona would later head to the United dressing room to congratulate his former side on the historic comeback, posing for a picture with Sir Alex Ferguson and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
