Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar broke down in tears on the pitch after his side lost the Champions League final to Bayern Munich on Sunday night.
Kingsley Coman’s second-half header separated the two teams at the Lisbon showpiece, leaving the Brazilian winger without a European trophy this season.
Neymar was left heartbroken by the defeat, as he was looking to claim his first Champions League title since leaving Barcelona, who he won the competition with in 2015.
And PSG’s main man was left crushed by the inability to drive his team to victory in Lisbon and had to be consoled by victorious defender, Nigerian-born David Alaba at the full-time whistle.
Bayern manager Hansi Flick also came over to commiserate a weepy Neymar, who was also in tears when he went up to collect his runners-up medal after the match.
Neymar tried to get his team back into the game following Bayern’s opener – the attacker fired a snapshot wide from the edge of the area in his only real chance of the match.
Speaking after the game, Neymar tweeted: ‘Losing is part of the sport, we try everything, we fight until the end. Thank you for the support and affection of each one of you and CONGRATULATIONS to BAYER’
After seeing the Brazilian star in floods of tears after the game, social media users compounded Neymar’s misery further by taunting him on Twitter.
One fan said: ‘Neymar in tears at the end. He should have tried passing to his team mates. Dreadful performance’
Other supporters criticised the Brazilian for his performance in the final with Bayern Munich, with some claiming that the winger did not turn up for the occasion.
A fan tweeted: ‘Neymar got to be the most overrated player in the world right now. Totally anonymous.’
Another supporter said: ‘Neymar crying, tears of joy in my eyes.’
Meanwhile, one fan claimed: ‘Idk why neymar is crying.. next time play properly’
One fan claimed: ‘Neymar is so overrated…. A big game and he went missing it’s all well and good doing a few tricks but the game is about more than a step over.’
Another said: ‘Missing : Brazilian footballer. Answers to the name of Neymar.’
This is not the first time the Brazilian winger has been reduced to tears in a match.
Neymar was heartbroken when he was ruled out of the 2014 World Cup semi-final due to an injury he picked up in the last-eight win over Colombia.
The player was so devastated that Brazil’s players held up a shirt for the player before the semi-final against Germany, which the Selecao dramatically lost 7-
Last year, Neymar was injured ahead of the 2019 Copa America tournament due to an ankle injury sustained in a 2-0 pre-tournament friendly win over Qatar.
He was seen in floods of tears on the side of the pitch while medical staff were treating his injury.
