Michel Der Zakarian has called out on Neymar for provoking the opposing players with his showboating.

Neymar scored a brilliant freekick from 25 yards to level his side against Montpellier in Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi later added two more goals to ensure all three points for PSG.

Understandably, the Montpellier manager was not happy after the match. But rather than the loss, Michel Der Zakarin expressed his frustration on PSG star Neymar. Der Zakarin accused the Brazilian of using unnecessary theatrics during the match.

“He [Neymar] has a game who always provoke the opponents with his skills and his dribbles,” Der Zakarian said as per Goal.

“When he takes a kick he is always crying.”

Montpellier striker Andy Delort also confirmed his manager’s accusations by throwing more dirt on Neymar. The Algerian felt that Neymar lacks respect for his opposition players.

“He’s a great player and it’s just a pity at the end of the game that he wound everyone up. I said to him that his team was 3-1 up,” Delort described.

“He played 63 one-twos and didn’t need to do that. He told me he was just playing passes. That’s not being respectful but then we mustn’t have the same education.

“He’s a bit on the edge and haughty with everybody. I told him that he needed to respect people.”
