After FIFA World Cup 2018, Neymar’s image as a footballer has been turned upside down. He has been on the receiving end of critics and trolls for trying to get penalties and free kicks by trying to act injured. In yesterday’s Champions League clash between Liverpool and PSG, his antics took the centrestage despite him scoring a goal. In a time where everything on the football field gets recorded from all possible angles, Neymar does not seem to care what people think of him.
FYI, this is what he did to convince the referee that he has been fouled. We are still confused how Mohamed Salah fouled Neymar without touching him.
never have I seen refereeing soo poorly!!! ball doesn’t even go out of play… then Neymar falls over and gets a foul?! COMICAL pic.twitter.com/7kgBd3Jk1w

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio was present at the Parc des Princes stadium, Paris. This gave Twitterati another reason to troll the Brazillian for his theatrics.
The 26-year-old just fell on the ground trying to take a shot but still managed to get a free kick. We guess he just had it coming

Leonardo Di Caprio came to watch the PSG v Liverpool game as one of the best actor in the world. Now he will be wondering how the fuck have Neymar & Co. overtaken his acting legacy in the space of only 90 minutes#PARLIV #UCL

Since Leonardo DiCaprio was watching the game you can’t blame Neymar and the rest showing their acting prowess and it worked.

Is Leonardo Dicaprio at PSG to scout the red-hot acting talent that is Neymar?

The thing is, Neymar does not need to do this on the field. He is a world class player capable of destroying oppositions with his football skills, not his acting skills.
