Neymar booked for attempting outrageous skill against Montpellier during the game played in Ligue 1 last night, which PSG won by 5-0.
Neymar has shown some brilliant performances for PSG this season, with the 27-year-old forward coming back to his best self slowly. Last night game was also somewhat same as Neymar showed some skilful gameplay.
He was so humiliating his opponents so much that even the referee in the game had problems with the Brazilian Internationa. Neymar was reportedly booked by the referee for attempting a rainbow flick in the game against Montpellier.
After PSG scoring the first goal, Neymar turned on his freestyler mode and attempted a rainbow flick over the head of two defenders, dummied to boot it long when at left-back only to produce a faint.
When fouled by a defender proceeded to humiliate him with numerous stopovers. Neymar seemed to be unstoppable but this irking the referee sounds too absurd.
Não gosto do futebol do Neymar e nem da sua pessoa, mas levar um cartão amarelo por dar um drible da lambreta aí é já é demais. É por isso que o futebol da várzea a cada dia vem crescendo. #NãoAoFutebolModerno pic.twitter.com/Egtaan7Cay

Later in the game, Neymar also showed displeasure towards the officials for their futile judgement. The Brazilian got so heated up that it led to an angry exchange at half-time in the tunnel.
“I play football and he shows me a yellow card! Tell him he can’t give me a yellow,” Neymar said to teammate Marco Verratti. “Be patient,” replied Brisard.

“Be patient… My a**,” Neymar snapped back, while Neymar marched back to the dressing room during the half-time. After the match, Neymar took to Instagram to simply write: “I just play football”.

Although this was probably the highest controversial point in the game, there were other incidents too. Montpellier first of two red cards came in the 17th minute as goalkeeper Dimitry Bertaud was dismissed for handling outside of his penalty area.
Then later in the game, Kylian Mbappe was spotted fuming as he didn’t like being subbed off in the last night game, which also led an exchange of words between the two on the sideline.
