It has been a tough week for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.
Having been criticised for a quiet performance in the 3-1 defeat away at Real Madrid in the Champions League last Wednesday, he was then trolled by Spanish side Leganes and now Strasbourg’s former St Mirren loanee Stephane Bahoken has stuck the boot in.

Bahoken and his Strasbourg side came up against the wounded Ligue 1 leaders at Parc des Princes on Saturday, and although they ended up losing 5-2, they took a surprise lead and pulled to within one goal of their hosts late on before an Edinson Cavani double.
After Bahoken’s second half striker, journalist Francois Denat snapped a perfectly timed photograph of Neymar appearing to bow down to his opponent’s greatness and the striker liked the picture so much that he has adopted it as his new Twitter profile.
Given that half of his four goals in Le Championnat this season have come against Neymar and PSG, you can hardly blame him.
