Booed, objects thrown at him but Neymar once again shows why PSG need him

Neymar is a troubled man, well, at least on the pitch, thanks to the club's fans. 

For the second week running, the Brazilian was at the receiving end of boos and attacks from the Paris Saint-Germain fans, who are still angered by his insistence to leave in the summer, with Barcelona his desired destination. 

The former Catalan endured a torrid time at home against Strasbourg the other week but scored a stunning last-minute strike to give the side all the three points and silence the hostile fans. 

After the match, he indicated he had put all the transfer drama behind him and was keen on helping his side achieve further glory at home and in Europe. 

The fans are however having none of it, and they attacked the mercurial forward once again at Lyon on Sunday night. 

Interestingly even the Lyon fans joined in the party, as they chucked plastic cups at him while he was attempting to take a corner.



in a match where Thomas Tuchel's team was missing a host of key players in the likes Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Mauro Icardi and Pablo Sarabia, it was expected Neymar would step up, and step up he did.

With the match, arguably the biggest of the weekend in France seemingly headed for a 0-0 draw, the South American star once again bailed his side out with an 87th-minute winner, wriggling in the box amid a host of bodies to slot into the far post. 



The three points saw PSG leap to the top of the table once again, and despite the hostile reception, Neymar is doing what exactly he is paid to do; score goals. 

With such performances, it will only be a matter of time before the fans forget and forgive. 

PSG next takes on Stade Reims on Wednesday.
