Scorer against Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday in the Champions League, Neymar received a yellow card after his celebration.
The Paris Saint-Germain No. 10, however, did nothing out of place since he celebrated his goal in the same way as all the others since the start of the season, making a face at the cameras. The referee, who may have thought that Neymar was disrespectful to the Israeli fans, immediately drew a yellow card, which did not fail to react on social networks, where Neymar himself was indignant at this yellow card totally free. On the antenna of L’Equipe du Soir, the journalist Vincent Duluc also scratched the referee of the meeting. If he is not necessarily the type to defend Neymar usually, the journalist from the national daily believes that on this occasion, the Brazilian from PSG had nothing to do with it and was the victim of an excess of authority on the part of of the referee.
Neymar didn’t deserve the yellow card
“VAR is already completely changing our experience of the stadium, and the way in which you can be happy or unhappy with a goal… If in addition you have to police and manage the manifestations of joy… It’s going to be a football that will be sad! Not only do we not know whether to be happy before slowing down, and you no longer have the right to be happy and show it… That’s a lot! It is obvious that provocation is the limit. The provocation of the public must be this limit, we do not have the right to be in front of the opposing public and do anything. There for Neymar, it was not one “ judged Vincent Duluc, for whom Neymar absolutely did not have to take a yellow card at this time of the match in view of his celebration a bit roomy, but really not mean. A mark of support from the French press that the Brazilian from Paris Saint-Germain will appreciate at its fair value.
