Neymar Punches Fan After Coupe de France Defeat

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar may find himself in further trouble after striking a fan following his club’s Coupe de France final defeat on Saturday.


After a lengthy injury lay-off, the forward was fit to play the decider against Rennes and scored after 21 minutes to put his side 2-0 up, after compatriot Dani Alves had opened the scoring.


Rennes came roaring back, however, and netted either side of half-time to level the final before eventually prevailing on penalties.


After the team’s defeat, the Brazilian let his frustration get the best of him.


As PSG went up the stairs at Paris’ Stade de France Neymar stopped to bat a phone away from a fan, with the pair subsequently maintaining a verbal exchange.


While it is unclear what was said between the two, Neymar reacted by flicking his fist out at the individual’s head before he was hustled away from the area by team-mates.
