SUMMARY

Brazilian forward Neymar has again taken a swipe at Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu, saying he is a joke

Neymar is the world's most expensive player, his transfer to PSG costing around 222 million euros

Paris St. Germain forward Neymar has revived his criticism of Barcelona FC President Josep María Bartomeu, referring to the president as a ‘joke’ on his Instagram.

The forward signed for Barcelona in 2013 in a controversial transfer that saw him become on of the most paid players I Spain.

With his father as his only agent, Neymar was part of the iconic Barcelona MSN (Messi, Suarez, Neymar), lifting two La Liga titles, one Champions League Cup and three Copa Del Rey’s.



He later made the 222 million euro move to French giants Paris St. Germain, a move that left President Josep María Bartomeu with a sour taste in his mouth.

"We made the mistake of trusting Neymar and his father too much," said Bartomeu, a statement that went viral online, prompting the Brazilian to reply with a cheeky “This President is a joke…”


Neymar is off to a flying start to his career in France, scoring 3 goals in 3 games, assisting two.
