NEYMAR appeared to PUNCH a Rennes supporter following Paris Saint-Germain’s shock French Cup final defeat.

The Brazilian superstar, 27, was walking up the steps at the Stade de France last night to collect his runners-up medal.

And with the cameras all around, he suddenly lost his cool and lashed out at the supporter goading him.

After an exchange of angry words, the fan leaned forward to put his head close to Neymar’s.

Then the world’s most expensive player threw his right fist towards the fan, who jumped backwards.

The video, shared by @lolanoushka, was captioned: “Shame on you Neymar.”

The star’s 19-year-old team-mate Moussa Diaby was following him up the steps and tried to diffuse the situation.

PSG’s players were understandably angry after allowing a two-goal lead slip.

Dani Alves and Neymar had put the Ligue 1 champions 2-0 up inside 21 minutes.

NIGHT TO FORGET

But an own goal from Presnel Kimpembe just before half-time gave Rennes a lifeline and Edson Andre Sitoe completed the comeback and took the final into extra time.

Neither side could find a winner as the game edged towards penalties.

But Kylian Mbappe was forced to sit out of the shootout because he saw red two minutes from the end of extra time.

Christopher Nkunku – a target for Arsenal – skied his penalty over the bar meaning Rennes celebrated a stunning victory.

It is the first time the club have won the Coupe de France since 1971, stretching back 48 years.

But while Rennes supporters will no doubt still be celebrating, Neymar will be fretting over another rap from the footballing authorities.


On Friday, he was slapped with a three-match ban in next season’s Champions League after his foul-mouthed Instagram rant when PSG were knocked out by Manchester United.

The forward insulted the referees after Kimpembe was penalised for handball, allowing Marcus Rashford to score a dramatic winner.

Now Neymar faces an anxious wait to find out what punishment will come his way after the altercation with the fan.
