Neymar loves dishing out nutmegs on opponents but when someone does it to him, it appears as though the Brazilian doesn’t like it one bit.

Footage has emerged of Paris Saint-Germain training prior to the 3-2 win over RB Leipzig on Tuesday night and Neymar did not enjoy having the ball rolled through his legs.

In a rondo exercise, teammate Ander Herrera humiliated Neymar with a nutmeg pass and the former Barcelona forward fell to the floor.

Herrera celebrated in the face of Neymar, going over to him with his fists in the air. All looked nice and jovial, wlth Lionel Messi cracking a big smile.

Herrera celebrated in the face of Neymar, going over to him with his fists in the air. All looked nice and jovial, wlth Lionel Messi cracking a big smile.

But then when Herrera got the ball again, Neymar made him his target. He went in extremely late on the Spaniard and kicked him wildly with his left foot.

Still, Herrera took it all very well and was laughing before returning back to his feet. The former Manchester United midfielder loves a crunching tackle so he definitely appreciated the challenge from Neymar, who he has developed a productive relationship with since moving to Paris.

Neymar was missing from PSG’s win at the Parc des Princes due to injury but watched the five-goal thriller from the stands.

Lionel Messi struck twice, including a glorious Panenka penalty down the middle, as PSG came back from 2-1 down.

Kylian Mbappe, who had opened the scoring, had the chance to bag a fourth goal in stoppage time when Messi unselfishly allowed him to take the spot-kick when on a hat-trick.

 

However, the Frenchman blazed his effort over the bar. The cameras panned to Neymar and he had his head in his hands.
