Ajax captain Dusan Tadic slapped David Neres in the face celebrating a goal vs Lille

Ajax captain Dusan Tadic got a bit heavy-handed with David Neres

Footballers sometimes have a tendency to get carried away when celebrating a goal.

There really is nothing better than scoring a finding the back of the net, especially in a prestigious competition like the Champions League.

But Ajax captain Dusan Tadic got a little bit too excited after Quincy Promes scored the opening goal against Lille tonight in Amsterdam during the club's opening Champions League fixture.

Footage quickly emerged on social media showing the Serbian forward giving teammate David Neres a pretty hard slap, prompting a hilarious reaction from the Brazilian.

He genuinely looked stunned by Tadic's actions, but the former Southampton man quickly made up for it by planting a kiss on the cheek of Neres.

The Brazilian's reaction is going to be a meme, isn't it?

Ajax will be hoping to enjoy another memorable season in the Champions League after their run to the semi-final in 2018/19.

The Dutch champions sold Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong in the summer, but did bring in some stellar acquisitions to cope with their exits.

Promes and Mexican centre-back Edson Alvarez were their two marquee signings and both already look like great purchases - and they cost less than £30m combined.
