Neymar fumes at Paqueta yellow card: This is very sad, to get a booking for trying a trick

Neymar took to social media following his Paris Saint-Germain side's 2-1 win over Metz on Wednesday day to condemn the decision to book Lyon midfielder Lucas Paqueta for a trick in their 3-1 victory at home to Troyes.

PSG's triumph made it seven wins out of seven in Ligue 1, but Neymar was keen to support his compatriot Paqueta after the game.

Paqueta had tried to lift the ball over a Troyes player's head near the corner flag, and it seemed to hit their hand, which Paqueta appealed for.

But the referee saw it differently.

Neymar supports Paqueta

"This is very sad, to get a yellow card for trying a trick," Neymar wrote on his Instagram story.

"The trick is a way to solve a problem, it doesn't matter where it is on the pitch nor the minute it takes place in.

"It happened to me last year and this year it's happened to Paqueta."

Neymar has consistently shown his disdain for these types of refereeing decisions, in particular when he was booked against Montpellier last term.

"Honestly, I don't understand it," he continued in his message.

"This is what 'Joga Bonito' is - to have fun while playing."
