Samir Nasri, Ashley Young, Ashley Cole, El Hadji Diouf, Pepe, Diego Costa. There’s always been a steady stream of really unlikable proper dickhead footballers in the world. Even Ronaldo (ripped Ronaldo that is), before he got out-of-this-world brilliant that you now just respect him, was incredibly easy to hate.
It was officially confirmed during this year’s World Cup that Neymar was the most hated footballer on the planet after his play acting antics prompted the world to mock him through pretty funny diving memes.
But if I made that up and it wasn’t actually confirmed then, it is officially confirmed now. After scoring the opener for PSG today against Nimes today, the Brazilian went over to the home supporters posing in front of a banner that said ‘Neymar cries’ as he made a crying gesture.
Meanwhile in Ligue 1…

He was unsurprisingly pelted with missiles from the Nimes fans and unfortunately we can report that none of them hit him.
And, while some might think his celebration was decent trolling and this is slightly harsh then let’s remind ourselves just how big of a bellend he really is. Throwback to when he milled a young kid against a wall – at his own 5-a-side tournament – after he dispossessed him. And didn’t even shake his hand after.
Yea, you’re class Neymar but you’re still a plank.

One more thing. Mbappe also scored this screamer before being sent off.
