Neymar was involved in an altercation with Tiago Djalo after PSG’s defeat against Lille

Paris Saint-Germain talisman Neymar could find himself in hot water again after he was involved in a furious tunnel bust-up with Tiago Djalo after PSG’s costly Ligue 1 defeat against Lille.

The Brazillian superstar, making only his second appearance since an injury lay-off that kept him out of action for six weeks, was dismissed in the closing stages of Saturday’s crucial league encounter at Parc des Princes.

Jonathan David’s 20th minute goal was enough to secure a landmark victory for the visitors as they moved three points ahead of their opponents in the race to be crowned French champions.

But the big talking point of the game came in the 90th minute when Neymar was involved in an altercation with Djalo during the closing stages which saw culminated in the 29-year-old lashing out at his opponent and sending him tumbling to the floor.

Referee Benoit Bastien saw fit to caution both players but the row continued all the way to the tunnel area, leaving the match official with no option but to award both men with red cards after the final whistle.

Words were then exchanged in the tunnel as the players made their way to the dressing room and only the presence of security staff prevented Neymar from becoming involved in another physical confrontation with Djalo.
