Amidst growing rumors of Barcelona star striker Neymar’s move to PSG for a world-record amount of 195 million pounds, an incident today has added fuel to this fire. Neymar storms out of Barcelona practice session in Miami following an altercation with a teammate! Read on to find out more about this surprising incident.
Neymar storms out – What transpired
In a practice session, all seemed fine until new Barcelona signing Nelson Semedo decided to pull off a harsh tackle. This angered the Brazilian who immediately confronted the Semedo. He had to be restrained by teammates with Sergio Busquets even holding him back from going after the new signing from Benfica.
Even after the tackle, Neymar seemed visibly upset. He shouted and gestured at Semedo and gave him an earful. The angry striker then tore off his training bib and threw a fit as the hapless manager Ernesto Valverde looked on. He only stalked off after a reassuring pat on the back from Javier Mascherano and Sergio Busquets.
Neymar then followed up his frustration by angrily fireing a ball off the crossbar of a nearby training goal. He then booted another one away as he left the field. Accompanied by a member of the Barcelona staff, he stormed off into the car park and left the training area immediately.
What they say?
This incident happened during a session at Miami, where Barcelona are undergoing their series of prestigious pre-season tour of friendlies. The walk out has happened just prior to the crucial encounter between La Liga rivals Real Madrid on Saturday.
It is also revealed that Neymar plans to duck out of Barcelona’s flight back to Spain . This surfaces amid reports that his commercial commitments in China on Monday have been cancelled. It is being said that this has happened due to the player’s involvement in the big upcoming transfer.
