Barcelona star Neymar embarrasses himself as his difficult period continues

Neymar's woes continue - Action Images

Much was expected of the 22-year-old following his move to Barcelona last year. Things have not worked out as hoped, however, and Wednesday night proved yet another disappointment.

Barcelona lost 2-1 to Real Madrid in the final of the Copa del Rey after a late goal from Gareth Bale secured victory for the Madrid outfit.

Not only did the Neymar turn in an ineffective performance, but the Brazilian youngster was also at the centre of a scuffle that took place that could, on another day, have earned him a red card.

Real Madrid were clearly sent out with a brief to try and get under Neymar’s skin and Fábio Coentrão was able to force a reaction out of the attacker.

Neymar reacted by first appearing to head-butt the full-back, before leaning in to try and bite the Portuguese’s fingers.

He only did this when frightened off by an angry Pepe.

Neymar later hit the post when in a good position to score and he will be hoping that his good form returns with a World Cup in his home country looming large.
