Neymar Entered Into Heated Confrontation With Referee After Yellow Card For 'Showboating'

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar slammed referee Jerome Brisard during a heated confrontation in the tunnel at half-time.

The 27-year-old Brazilian forward was in his showboating element in the first half and attempted to pull off a rainbow flick against two Montpellier players.

And Neymar also showed a ruthless side when he embarrassed Teji Savanier by dribbling past him after the midfielder's initial foul.

Not long after his rainbow flick, the referee warned Neymar about his antics on the pitch and later brandished a yellow card for unsporting behaviour.

The Brazil international was furious with the decision and expressed his disappointment in a conversation with PSG teammate Marco Verratti.

"I play football and he shows me a yellow card! Tell him he can't give me a yellow," Neymar told his teammate.

But Brisard told Neymar to be "patient" and that only intensified the anger of the ex-Barcelona star.

Neymar responded: "Be patient... My a**e."

The Brazilian superstar, who was heavily linked with Barcelona last summer, also fired out a shot at the referee on his Instagram.

He posted in a message to his 132m followers: "I just play football."

PSG thrashed Montpellier 5-0 at the Parc des Princes on Saturday and maintain their dominance over Ligue 1.

Despite the intense transfer speculation surrounding Neymar last summer, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has suggested the Brazilian has become "the leader we hoped for."

He explained: "There are a lot of words to describe Neymar. But the best way of describing him is to watch the games.

"He is very decisive for us, he closes spaces, he defends. He is the leader we hoped for and it's a really good time for him.

"The challenge is to keep going, to employ the same effort, the way of working and the mindset.

"It is good but it is just the beginning."
