NEYMAR has slammed a Champions League referee for a “lack of respect” after being booked celebrating.
The 30-year-old superstar was carded after he performed his trademark action in front of home fans during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-1 win over Maccabi Haifa.
The Brazilian forward has lashed out on social media at ref Daniel Siebert for lacking respect.
He told fans on Twitter that he will WARN the officials next time he celebrates.
The PSG star wrote: “Total lack of respect for the athlete. This kind of thing can’t happen.. I take the yellow for simply not having done anything and I’m still harmed.
“And the judge? Not even to say he was wrong, he will! a lot of lack of respect”
“Another victory, congratulations, but we move on right?
“There it is; a celebration is a yellow card, another one for the list for NJ [Neymar] haha, it’s only with me that these things happen to.
“Next time I will warn the referees that I am going to do it.”
Neymar scored a one-on-one in the 88th minute of the game before being yellow carded.
