When Neymar signed for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer for a world record £198million headlines were to be expected.
The former Barcelona star has undoubtedly started repaying his hefty transfer fee, with his performances on the pitch, after grabbing 10 goals in 11 outings.
However – what with disputes regarding penalties with Edinson Cavani and getting sent off for apparent headbutts – the Brazilian attacker has arguably caused more of a stir away from the pitch.
According to La Parisian the problems are continuing to mount for the mega-money man as his PSG teammates are said to be far from happy with the special privileges he is granted by the club.
Considering the money invested in him, it isn’t surprising the Qatari-backed team are keen to keep their biggest investment as happy as possible but even these privileges seem a bit much.
Reportedly the 25-year-old can’t receive heavy challenges in training and he does not need to take part in any defensive drills whatsoever.
Neymar, a stickler for style, is also allowed to carry his own bag with the brand he endorses while the rest of the PSG squad are required to travel with official club bags instead.
Furthermore the Brazilian also has two physiotherapists all to himself at every game – another kick in the teeth for his teammates.
After Neymar’s red card against Marseille, at the weekend, it will be interesting to see if any of these privileges will be revoked.
