I think he's gonna big or go home. So, to ensure that he tops all of his previous feats off... let's start our story on a bright sunny day at Le Parc des Princes for what seemed to be a regular friendly against Inter-milan FC... but Neymar had other plans.
Benched due to a reported injury to his right angle, Neymar starts the match as a spectator - although the press were unsure of the state of his injury or when he might be able to play again, there were rumors purported that he had been involved in an altercation with the head coach about his contract. Apparently, the two had spoken at length after Neymar was spotted vandalising an ATM machine just outside of Pigalle Place, the notorious red light district in the city of Paris. Although the report had not been confirmed, eye witnesses claim they saw him lose his temper at the cash machine at approximately 1.50am on Thursday morning and when confronted by authorities shortly afterwards, got into his Audi R8 and attempted to flee from the scene after running over a trash can and smashing into the local hot dog trolley as he drove away. French authorities chased after him in pursuit but was no match for the supercar, which disappeared into the night.
In an interview with witnesses after the bizarre incident, a local club operator reported that the young football star was a regular patron but this time had left abruptly without paying his bill or tipping his cocktail waitress, who was unavailable for comment. The Brazilian forward purportedly always received service from the same waitress, and has been seen leaving the establishment with her on several occasions. The club manager refused to provide any more details as to the identity of this woman, stating only that the private information of his "employees" were under "strict confidentiality" and that any further questioning would not be tolerated.
It was only the 11th minute of the match against Inter-milan when Neymar Jr. stood up from the substitute bench and was heard animately shouting, "I want my money, where's my money?" to head coach Thomas Tuchel, who in outrage proceeded to hurl a chair into the football pitch and was immediately given a red card by Argentine football referee and former actor Néstor Fabián Pitana, and ejected from his home stadium. Since play was in PSG's 18-yard box at the time of the incident, a penalty kick was awarded to Inter-milan for the unprofessional disruption - at which point, Neymar Jr. head-butted the 44 year-old referee in anger as players from both teams rushed onto the field in the beginning of what turned out to be a stadium-wide brawl between fans of both football clubs. The unrest continued for almost 20 minutes as two fires broke out in the stadium stands and the match was officially ended by UEFA's Pierluigi Collina citing safety concerns and unresolved legal issues concerning one of the PSG players.
It is currently unknown how the two incidents were, if at all, connected in some way and whether Neymar Jr. was the player alluded to with ongoing "unresolved" legal issues. He was last seen boarding his private jet a few hours later and his present whereabouts are unknown at the time of press. He will face a minimum of 200,000 Euros in fines for his assault on the match referee, and is suspended from further play until all investigations are concluded. The 27-year old Brazilian becomes the first League 1 player to be suspended due to criminal allegations and the second Brazilian footballer after Bruno Fernandes de Souza, who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend and sentenced to 22 years imprisonment. Incidentally, actress Bruna Marquezine - Neymar Jr's recently ended relationship - could not be located for comment.
