Neymar was fuming after Guendouzi's dive in PSG 2-1 Marseille

Neymar has gained a reputation for going down easily under contact during his football career.

The Brazilian has been accused of ‘diving’ numerous times since making his debut in 2009.

It’s extremely frustrating for opposition players when Neymar goes to the ground easily to try and win a foul.

And the 30-year-old was given a taste of his own medicine in Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 clash with Marseille on Sunday evening.

In the 55th minute, Matteo Guendouzi produced a pathetic dive as he flung himself to the ground with Neymar nearby.

The referee deemed there had been contact and immediately blew his whistle to signal a foul.

Neymar was not happy. He ran straight to the referee and wagged his finger in protest.

His anger only intensified when he was shown a yellow card.

Neymar screamed at Guendouzi, who was still on the floor despite nothing being wrong with him.

The Brazilian had to be restrained by Dimitri Payet and Marco Verratti to prevent him from losing his rag even more.

Watch the moment below…

While Guendouzi’s dive was embarrassing, BT Sport commentator Jonathan Pearce chose to lambast Neymar for his reaction.

He said: “Neymar’s reaction is stupid beyond belief. Hopping and jumping about… I mentioned in the first-half he has a new maturity about him. He certainly hasn’t, has he? He’s now screaming at the assistant referee with millions watching around the world.”

PSG went on to win the game 2-1.

Strikes from Neymar and Kylian Mbappe either side of a Duje Ćaleta-Car goal meant PSG are now potentially a game away from clinching the Ligue 1 title.

PSG could win the title on Wednesday should they beat Angers and Marseille fail to defeat Nantes.
