Neymar's highlights for PSG vs Reims as a centre-mid are just brilliant

Neymar was on fire during PSG's 2-0 win over Reims

Neymar da Silva Santos Junior was up to his usual tricks on Sunday evening versus Reims.

The Brazilian superstar went viral across social media after delivering yet another jaw-dropping piece of skill to leave an opposing defender for dead.

Naturally, football fans across the world were left in awe after watching the 28-year-old's feet do their thing, but Neymar's performance against Reims was about far more than just silky skills.

Puma's poster boy spent much of the 2-0 victory at the Stade Auguste-Delaune playing as a central midfielder and his highlights from the game are simply spectacular.

The guy can do it all. He scores and assists for fun, but he's also capable of dictating the tempo of a game and kickstarting attacks from deep - much like his former teammate Lionel Messi.

PSG's front three of Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria were supported brilliantly by their Brazilian conductor-in-chief.

Icardi and Mbappe both grabbed a goal and an assist apiece in the 2-0 victory, but there's no doubting that Neymar was the standout performer in northeastern France.

But after the game, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel wasn't completely happy with his talisman, insisting that he wants the world's most expensive footballer to do less defensive work in the future.

"He did too much defensively, especially in the first half," Tuchel said after the game. "I want him to play like a No.10 but he played like an 8, 6 and 10."

Neymar in action

It's a fair point, but when that player creates four chances, plays four key passes, completes five dribbles and makes 70 passes with 85% accuracy, it's probably best to just let him do what he wants.

There's a reason why many believe Neymar is the third best player in the world.
