O Paris Saint Germain beat Maccabi Haifa 3-1 this Wednesday and one of the goals of the match was scored by Neymar. The Brazilian received a yellow card for his celebration and was not happy. The ace used his social networks to complain about the arbitration.

The confusion happened in the last minutes of the match by the Champions League. In the 43rd minute of the final stage, Neymar scored Paris Saint-Germain’s third goal and celebrated the way he has done since the beginning of this season: with his hands open close to his face and his tongue out. The game’s referee, German Daniel Siebert, interpreted the attitude as a provocation to Maccabi Haifa fans, who packed the Sammy Ofer Stadium in Israel.

In a post on his Instagram, Neymar said that “football is increasingly boring” and mocked the situation.

“Another victory, we are to be congratulated, but we’re still going. That’s it. In celebration, a yellow card. Another one for the NJ list (short for Neymar Júnior). It’s just me that these things happen. Next time I’ll let you know the referees what I’m going to do”, protested the Brazilian.

It is not the first time that Neymar has been punished for, according to the referees, provoking his opponents. In February 2020, in his team’s victory against Montpellier, the Brazilian received a yellow card for applying a reel to a rival player. At the time, the situation went viral mainly because of the player’s complaints to the judge and on his social media.
