Xavi shoves Neymar in the face during Barcelona celebrations

Barcelona was in party mode on Sunday as their heroic football team returned from Berlin with their fourth Champions League trophy in nine years.

An open top bus parade followed with hundreds of thousands of fans turning out to celebrate with their sporting idols.

But while the mood appeared jubilant for most of the day, alcohol infused emotions on the bus threatened to turn things sour.

It all started when Xavi climbed onto the rails of the double-decker bus, putting him closer to making a fool of himself by falling out and causing a serious injury to himself and probably an unlucky fan below.

Neymar saw sense and duly tried to pull Xavi down from said rail, only for the Spanish veteran, who played his last game for Barcelona in that Champions League final, was clearly not ready to remove himself from imminent danger.

Drunken rampage

The team captain showed the pesky young Brazil international exactly who was boss by giving him a royal shove to the face. If only he had a custard pie to hand.

To be fair, by the look of Neymar's face post-shoving, it is likely the 24-year-old would have only caused Xavi more damage. One imagines the scorer of Barcelona's third and final goal will forgive Xavi and/or will not remember Xavi did it in the first place.


What do you think Xavi was trying to do, exactly?
