Neymar marks his debut in Saudi Arabia by pushing his opponent and throwing the ball at him as fans joke: “Is his sister’s birthday coming up?”

NEYMAR’s first start for Al-Hilal was marred by him pushing the ball at an opponent and kicking it up with his foot.

The Saudi team played against Navbahor in the Asian Champions League.

Neymar played the entire 90 minutes as Al-Hilal lost 1-1 to the minors from Uzbekistan.

Navbahor took the lead after 52 minutes and a frustrated Neymar flared up soon after.

He was unable to take a quick free kick because an opponent was standing in front of the ball.

The former Barcelona and PSG player was angry and pushed him to the ground.

He then shot the ball at the player as he fell to the ground.

Neymar received a yellow card for the incident.

Fans criticized his behavior, with one saying: “That’s why no European club was interested in him, he’s so toxic.”

Another suggested he might want to get a red card, commenting: “Is his sister’s birthday coming up or something?”


This is due to the fact that Neymar was regularly injured or suspended around his sister Rafaella’s birthday.

He has missed games around their special day on March 11 in nine different years.

After Neymar’s antics, Al-Hilal finally equalized in the tenth minute of stoppage time through Ali Albulayhi, securing a point in their opening game of the group stage.

It was the Brazilian’s second game after coming on as a substitute in Friday’s 6-1 win over Al-Riyadh.

His debut was met with boos from fans as he was denied the chance to take a penalty and instead Salem Al-Dawsari stepped up to convert.

Al-Hilal paid £77.6m for Neymar and he is expected to pocket £2.5m a week.
