When Neymar Threw A Teenage Right-Back To The Floor After Being Nutmegged In Training

Neymar once threw teenage right-back Weverton Guilherme to the turf during training - because he completely mugged him off with a nutmeg.

Weverton was in the Cruzeiro academy at the time and was given the chance to train with Tite's side prior to the Copa America in 2019.

He went up against the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Casemiro and didn't look out of place.

In fact, the current Red Bull Bragantino man decided to test his skills by going one-on-one with superstar Neymar - who he managed to sensationally nutmeg.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar clearly wasn't impressed with his skills and proceeded to pull his shirt, flooring the defender in the meantime.

As you can see in the footage above, Neymar walks away as Weverton lay on the floor after being pulled down.

It was a shame to see Neymar react this way considering it was tricks like this that allowed him to burst onto the world stage in his teenage years.

The 28-year-old was stripped of the Brazil captaincy earlier that year after a string of disciplinary issues.

His entire 2019 was blighted by controversy, from his reaction to PSG's Champions League elimination to Manchester United and the various injuries he picked up,

But 2020 has seen the former Barcelona man get back on the right path and prove why he's touted as one of the world's best players.

The duo have gone back and forth after a fake image of Haaland circulated with the caption: 'Paris is my city' after his brace in the Champions League tie between the two sides.

Neymar copied Haaland's 'tranquility' celebration and also orchestrated a mass celebration at full time to mock the Norwegian.

What do you think of Neymar's reaction and do you think he went too far?
