BAYERN MUNICH fans launched fake Neymar banknotes at the world’s most expensive player in the clash against Paris Saint-Germain. The inventive Bayern supporters put the Brazilian’s face onto doctored 500 Euro notes and chucked them onto the Allianz pitch as they won 3-1 in the Champions League.
The Bayern fans threw these ‘Neymar notes’ onto the pitch when PSG played
PSG lost their second game in the space of five days after suffering their first defeat in Ligue 1 so far this season against Strasbourg last Saturday. Corentin Tolisso scored two after Robert Lewandowski’s opener.
Kylian Mbappe got one back for the visitors and that proved enough for them to top Group B – with Celtic, in the same group, finishing third for a Europa League spot. Some viewers online failed to see the funny side.
Neymar had a night to forget in Munich
They criticised the club for being hypocrites – Bayern purchased Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels and Mario Gotze from nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund. It could be argued PSG were just copying a technique already perfected by Bayern, especially after the French side’s loan signing of Mbappe in the summer. One wrote: “Greatest hypocrisy of the day goes to fans of Bayern. Ridiculous.” Another, hinting that Bayern were jealous of PSG, wrote: “Just because he didn’t go there.”
A fellow user posted: “Fans of Bayern – are they not hypocrites? They but all the players of Germany and complain of Neymar.” And one said: “Must be because he didn’t want to go to Bayern.”
