Neymar celebrated by pretending to throw around money after scoring against Liverpool and then danced in Alisson’s shirt at full-time.
The Paris Saint-Germain star scored his side’s second goal at the Parc des Princes, starting and finishing a devastating counter-attack. The world’s most-expensive footballer and his partner in crime Kylian Mbappe pretended to dish out bank notes in the celebration.
Neymar’s left-footed finish into the bottom corner proved to be the match winner after Juan Bernat capitalised on some hesitant defending in the Liverpool box to open the scoring. James Milner slotted in a penalty on the stroke of half-time after Angel Di Maria needlessly slid in on Sadio Mane to make it 2-1 but that is how it ended in the French capital.
Neymar now has 14 goals in 17 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions, including four in the Champions League. And his goal made him the top-scoring Brazilian in the competition’s history with 31 goals.
But most of the social media attention was grabbed by the money celebration. One Twitter user, Victor Christopher, said: “”Money can buy you the Champions League”. That’s simply the meaning of Neymar celebration versus Liverpool.” Another added: “Mbappe Neymar flaunting their money in that celebration.”
