Neymar was given a rough reception on his return to Paris Saint-Germain first-team duty, with fans targeting both the Brazilian and his father with insulting banners and chants on Saturday.
The forward had played no part in PSG’s opening four Ligue 1 matches as a seemingly endless transfer saga involving Barcelona played out.
Neymar is far from a fans’ favourite at the club following the summer’s exit shenanigans, though, and the PSG ‘Ultras’ made their feelings known before and during the match.
The striker’s name was greeted with a chorus of boos and jeers when read out over the tannoy prior to kick-off, in contrast with the shouts of support afforded to the rest of the starting XI.
And if he happened to look up at the stands, Neymar would have seen a number of less than friendly messages.
“Neymar Sr, sell your son in Vila Mimosa,” read one banner, referring to a neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro notorious for prostitution.
Another expressed hope that the Brazilian would ultimately end up at Camp Nou: “€20m to join Messi, no more wh**es in Paris.”
