Neymar was shocked after he was booked for simply performing a skill during yesterday’s match against Montpellier.
During the 38th minute of the game, the 27-year-old attempted a rainbow flick and soon after that, referee Jerome Brisard reached his pocket and showed him a yellow car. Neymar was disappointed with the decision and in this video uploaded on Twitter, he can be seen telling the referee: “I am playing football”.
