Neymar angers PSG fans with comment on Barcelona post after Champions League clash

Neymar was put in a slightly awkward position on Wednesday night when two of his former clubs when head-to-head in the Champions League.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain contested a superb quarter-final first-leg at the Parc des Princes, with the La Liga side eventually coming from behind to win 3-2.

Neymar's compatriot Raphinha opened the scoring for Barcelona before two quick-fire goals from Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha turned the match on its head after the break.

But Barcelona rallied and equalised through a second goal from Raphinha before Andrea Christensen completed the comeback for the visitors.

It puts Xavi's side in a strong position heading into the second leg at the Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, the club's temporary home while they complete their refurbishment of the Nou Camp.

After the match, Al Hilal star Neymar made clear where his allegiance lies out of Barcelona and PSG after commenting on post from the Spanish side.

The club's official account posted a picture of Raphinha performing Neymar's trademark tongue-out celebration, to which the Brazil international replied with a series of hand a tongue-face emojis.

PSG fans have predictably reacted angrily on social media.

"We don't recognise him anymore he left us when we needed him, he's no legend for us," posted one angry PSG fan on X.

Another added: "Neymar is a clown."

However, Barcelona supporters saw the funny side of his comment.

"Neymar really doesn't care about PSG feelings lmao," wrote one fan.

"Once a culer always a culer," posted another.

A third wrote: "That's so cold against your former employer."

While another added: "Lovely", followed by a series of laughing emojis.

PSG and Barcelona will meet in the second leg in Spain on April 16, with the winner facing either Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund in the next round.

Atletico beat Dortmund 2-1 at the Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday evening to take a narrow lead into the reverse fixture in Germany.
