PSG star Neymar reacts to Lionel Messi penalty before swiftly deleting tweet

PSG man Neymar couldn't hold his tongue while watching his side face Barcelona in the Champions League this evening.

The Brazilian, out injured at present, took to Twitter when Lionel Messi scored a penalty for the Nou Camp outfit in the first-half – condemning the referee's decision to award a spot-kick..

Many on social media accused Frenkie De Jong of tripping over his own legs to win the foul.

And Neymar clearly agreed, writing: "Joke that penalty" in Portuguese, accompanied by laughing emojis.

The 29-year-old swiftly deleted the post – but not before a host of people saw it on social media and began to share it themselves.

Neymar missed this evening's clash against his old side after suffering an injury to his groin last week.

"Neymar suffered an injury to the left adductor on Wednesday evening," a PSG statement read.

"On analysis of the clinical examination and imaging examinations, he will be unavailable for approximately four weeks depending on the course."

Neymar was clearly devastated to be out of action, taking to Instagram last week to vent his frustrations.

"The sadness is great, the pain is immense and the crying is constant," he posted alongside a photo of himself crying on the floor.

"Once again I will stop for a while to do what I love most in life, which is playing football.
