Montpellier striker Andy Delort is unhappy with the manner Paris St Germain’s superstar Neymar mocked his opponents.


The Brazilian Neymar and Montpellier’s Delort were separated by their respective team-mates after the match. The Algerian was unhappy with his opponent’s attitude towards the home side.

Neymar has been told he “doesn’t need to mock his opponents” as the PSG star prepares for a reunion with Montpellier striker Andy Delort.

The Brazil international was accused of being disrespectful after showboating in the closing stages of PSG’s 3-1 win at Montpellier in December.

He had scored PSG’s first goal of the night in that game with a fine free-kick, restoring parity after the Parisians had fallen behind in the first half through a Leandro Paredes own goal.

The hosts then saw defender Pedro Mendes sent off after picking up a yellow card, with subsequent goals from Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi eventually securing a full three-point haul for the Ligue 1 champions.

The drama did not end at full time.

However, Delort had to be separated from Neymar as they walked off the pitch. The Algeria international reproaching his opponent for what he saw as disrespect as the clock ticked down.

“Something happened when we got back to the dressing room. I created a buzz because it was him.” The forward explained.

“Whether it’s Neymar or someone else, whatever, he is just a man. Even if he’s an extraordinary player. He doesn’t need to mock his opponents.”

“He won 3-1 at the Mosson and scored an amazing free-kick. That was good. But I told him off for his somewhat arrogant attitude. It was important for me to tell him in front of his face.”

“Zlatan would make controversial statements in the media. But on the pitch, he at least was very respectful.” Added Delort.

Delort will have the chance to square up against Neymar again on Saturday at Par des Princes. The Brazilian, however, won’t be the only player Delort will be keeping an eye on.

“You just have the certainty of facing great players in a full stadium. We’ll see how Neymar looks at me. I’m not afraid of anyone. But the worst of the lot in Paris is Paredes. He insults everyone on the pitch despite the fact his name is Paredes, not Neymar.”
