Neymar Jr. was anything but happy with the referee in PSG’s 5-0 thrashing of Montpellier and took to the tunnel to express his anger. The Brazilian forward was visibly upset with the official after being booked.

After attempting a rainbow flick near the corner flag, the referee booked Ney for showboating. Once the game was finished and players were heading to the tunnel, the former Barcelona star confronted the referee saying that he was simply playing football.

In the video, Neymar was captured on camera saying, “I play football and this man gives me a yellow card.”

When the ref asked him to speak in French, Ney responded angrily cursing in French.

In the end, he had the last laugh as his team dominated Montpellier and now are leading the Ligue 1 table by 13 points ahead of second-placed Marseille.
