Shocking Footage Emerges Of Neymar And Tiago Djalo Clashing In Tunnel After Double Sending Off
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar and Lille defender Tiago Djalo were involved in a heated exchange in the tunnel after their initial altercation on the pitch.
PSG suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Lille at the Parc des Princes on Saturday as the defending French champions trail their rivals by three points in the title race.
Djalo managed to catch up to the 29-year-old Brazilian down the wing and pressured Neymar, who fell onto the pitch before scrambling to his feet.
The 20-year-old Lille centre-back tried to collect the loose ball and found Neymar lunging in with a rash tackle.
Djalo turned to voice his protests and even reached down to collect the ball after it went out of play, only for a furious Neymar to push him over as he retrieved the ball.

The Lille player didn't walk away from the incident any better than Neymar as he was also dismissed from the pitch during his side's victory.
Neymar and Djalo's initial encounter continued to spill over as both the PSG winger and Lille defender entered into a heated war of words as they left the pitch.
But footage now making the rounds on social media showed that tensions hit their boiling point in the tunnel.
While the two were separated by several figures, Neymar appeared to reach over and pushed Djalo's shoulder.
Djalo immediately lashed out into a verbal tirade as Neymar skipped his way around the personnel separating them.
Neymar's actions left the Portuguese defender to try and reach the former Barcelona star for a face-to-face confrontation.
The pair were kept separated, but one personnel fell to the floor as Djalo was held back from reaching Neymar.
Neymar was scurried away and appeared to yell something before he disappeared down a doorway.
