Barcelona star confronts fan in attempt for a fight

Neymar says he was simply ''playing'' with the Portuguese speaking fan who could have probably told him something derogatory

Neymar was pulled off the UEFA Champions League clash with Manchester City at the Etihad on Tuesday night for suspected cramps.

At the end of the game, with Barca running away 1-2 winners, the 23 year-old confronts a football fan for disrespecting him.

When asked about the situation, Neymar says that he was simply "playing" with the guy who was "mocking" in Portuguese, Brazil’s Lingua Franca.

‘I was just playing with him.

‘He began to curse me and I ended up mocking him.’

Asked to tell what the fan said, he simply replied: ''What he told me? I can not repeat it, no. My mother gave me an education. What his mother did not tell him, my mother taught me."
