Neymar throws mini tantrum after latest Barcelona substitution

Barely a week goes by without some kind of rumour or widespread speculation about alleged unrest at FC Barcelona, the majority of which has centred around the ongoing dispute between Lionel Messi and Luis Enrique.

However, the latest incident has nothing to do with any boardroom politics, and actually involves the Argentina international's Camp Nou team-mate Neymar, who was spotted throwing a mini strop after his early substitution in last night's emphatic 4-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna.

Okay, the former Santos starlet's reaction to being taken off at the Riazor on Sunday was not the most furious touchline tantrum ever seen, but he was clearly enraged about something as he threw his gloves down and took his place on the bench.

The 21-year-old Brazilian was replaced by Pedro with 20 minutes of the Primera Division contest remaining, although Barca had already secured all three points against Victor Fernandez's side after cruising into a 3-0 lead with relative ease.

Messi netted another hat-trick - which was the 30th treble of his career to date - to put the Catalan giants in the driving seat and ensure they stayed within one point of leaders Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Earlier in the day, Carlo Ancelotti's side won 3-0 away at Getafe to take their 2014/15 tally to 45 points from 18 games, and they still have a game in hand over their nearest rivals and reigning champions Atletico Madrid in third spot with 41 points.

Barca's rout was capped off by an unfortunate own goal when Alberto Lopo's clearance bounced off helpless team-mate Sidnei and into the Deportivo net past helpless goalkeeper Agosto Ramirez.

You can watch footage of Neymar's mini tantrum in the video above - with thanks to 101GG who first brought the clip to our attention - and have your say in the comment box provided why you think the Barcelona star was so p****d off...
