The Brazil international forward was on target for French heavy weights during a European clash with Maccabi Haifa in Israel. He wrapped up a 3-1 victory for PSG (Paris Saint Germain's) late on but was cautioned by German match official Daniel Siebert after breaking out a celebration that is quickly becoming his trademark.


After the game, Neymar aired his irritation on social media, saying: "Total lack of respect for the athlete. This kind of thing can't happen. I take the yellow for not having done anything and continuing to be harmed and the referee. Not even to say he was wrong, he will! A lot of lack of respect."

It has been getting plenty of airtime this season, with the South American taking his goal tally for the season to 11 when finding the target against Maccabi.
