Neymar filmed lashing out at fan and Kylian Mbappe is sent off as Paris Saint-Germain lose French Cup final
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is in trouble after he was filmed lashing out at a supporter after their French Cup final loss to Rennes.
The Brazilian scored in the 2-2 draw and also netted in the resultant penalty shoot-out, but after 11 successful spot-kicks Arsenal target Christopher Nkunku struck his over the bar to give their opponents victory.
And as the PSG players went up to collect their runners-up medals a number of fans were filming them, and Neymar took issue with one supporter, entering into a dialogue before thrusting his arm towards the man and appearing to make contact with his face.
The man who seemed to be struck by Neymar also uploaded a film of the incident on Snapchat.
The unsavoury moment marks a bad week for the forward, 27, who will now miss three UEFA Champions League matches next term following comments he made on social media about the penalty decision which put the Parisians out of this season’s competition.
Against Manchester United, referee Damir Skomina’s late call, made using the video assistant referee system, angered Neymar, who said: “It’s a disgrace. Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television.”

It will now be up to the French Football Association to make a decision on whether to punish the player for his latest indiscretion.
Team-mate Mbappe was shown red during the encounter for a tackle on Damien Da Silva, landing his studs high on his opponents’ right leg.
The result also continues PSG’s woeful recent form which sees them with only one win in their past five matches.
