Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar was understandably upset after being booked for showboating in PSG’s 5-0 trashing of Montpellier and took to the tunnel to express his anger.
After attempting a rainbow flick near the corner flag, the referee booked Neymar for showboating.
After the game, as the players headed into the tunnel, Neymar confronted the referee saying that he was simply playing football.
As seen in the video, Neymar was captured on camera saying, “I play football and this man gives me a yellow card.”
