Neymar was the centre of attention as his new club, Barcelona, beat his old one, Santos, 8-0 in a friendly at the Nou Camp on Friday night.

The match was arranged as part of the deal that brought Neymar to Spain this summer – and although the Brazilian forward didn’t find the scoresheet, he still impressed alongside four-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi.

It was a bit of a rout, with Barca enjoying a preseason run-out before the new season. And one of the funnier moments took place as Santos lined up to kick-off again after another Barca goal.

A Barca fan runs across the pitch, stewards and security staff in tow, and heads straight for Neymar. Before he can get there though, he’s wrestled to the ground and escorted off the pitch.

Neymar sees the funny side of it at least, and Cesc Fabregas cracks a smile.
