Brazillian star Neymar is clearly peeved at PSG’s dramatic defeat in the Coupe de France final to Rennes. He was caught on camera landing a punch to a supporter and then took to task the club’s younger players after the game.
According to journalist Marcelo Bechler, Neymar accused the younger players of being too lippy for their own good. Insisting that it is their ears that need perking up and not their mouths, the Brazilian argued that if this continued the team wouldn’t go far.
Bechler took to Twitter to post Neymar’s reaction.
The final was the PSG attacker’s second game since making a comeback from a three-month injury layoff. He was quite the presence at the Stade de France last night, scoring a goal, probing out wide, or drifting in to create all sorts of problems for the Rennes defence.
The Parisians, 2-0 ahead and cruising, were on course for a routine victory against a tough Rennes side. However, two goals either side of half-time, one an own goal from Kimpembe, pegged back their advantage.
The defending champions would lose Kylian Mbappe deep into extra time for a studs-up challenge on a Rennes defender before losing the shoot-out 6-5.
