Video: Neymar stood up to an abusive Manchester City fan after the final whistle last night

“You want some?”

Taking abuse from supporters is an unfortunate reality for most high-profile professional footballers, but Neymar wasn’t about to take it lying down after Barcelona’s defeat of Manchester City last night.

The Brazilian, who was substituted during Barcelona’s 2-1 win, was filmed exchanging gestures towards a Manchester City fan sat near the dugouts and briefly went to confront him at the final whistle.

At the start of the video below, Neymar can be seen gesturing to the fan in question to come at him.

Thankfully, nothing more than shapes were thrown as security intervened and more sensible supporters in the vicinity urged the guy who confronted Neymar to cop himself on.

No doubt Neymar will do his talking on the pitch when the sides meet again in three weeks’ time.
