Neymar Fined €6,000 For Autographing Young Villarreal Fan’s Shoe At Half-Time

According to several Spanish sources, Barcelona have seen fit to hit Neymar with a fine for having the outright temerity to sign an autograph for a small child during the half-time interval of Sunday’s 0-1 win over Villarreal.

It’s being reported that Neymar, who had started the game on the bench, was emerging from the tunnel to warm up at half-time when he was flagged down by a young Villarreal fan in the front row at El Madrigal and asked for an autograph.

The Brazilian forward duly obliged, signing one of the boy’s shoes – much to the ire of Barca coach Luis Enrique, who allegedly fined Neymar €6,000 after the game for doing so!

The incident was inquired about at a press conference with Barca director Andoni Zubizarreta on Tuesday, though his reply was non-committal.

“We have no problem with Neymar. His talent is beyond question,” said Zubizaretta.

“Other issues and sanctions are managed in the locker room and that’s where they stay.”

What’s the world coming to, eh?

    This explains why Messi didn’t shake that Brazilian kid’s hand at the World Cup.

    Why fine him???? Was it a part of the club’s rule, no signing of autograph during warm up periods? How about giving him a warning if that’s now become a rule of the Club.

    He’s now being penalized for doing something good but when he had been harassed with racial slurs from spectators he had to just deal with it while nothing being done about it by the Club.

    Penalty for doing good but wrongdoers go unpunished. These managers need to get a grip of themselves and realized that fans love the players more than the game.

    Look at Germany World Cup side, who’s routing for them? They play good football but hardly anyone cares because they’re no-namers and I meant no disrespect to the Germans but seriously, who’s talking about them?

    Brazil vs. Colombia match on Friday Sept. 5, is almost sold out!!! why’s that? Who are the fans going to see?

    Get a grip Luis Enrique!!!

    its the players who keep the directors etc in their rich suroudings and plush lifestyles if I was Neymar I would either refuse to play in the next game or fake an injury and stuff the team I wouldn’t let them do that to me he wants to get out of there where did this ruling come from some jobsworth in the back room? how can you treat a world class player like this?
