The multi-million-dollar Brazilian forward, one of the world’s most expensive players, has given netizens some joke material after he was spotted taking extra-care of his looks during the recent game between PSG and another French club, Reims, which ended with a 4-1 victory for the Paris club.
Neymar, who has been repeatedly mocked for his pasta-like hairstyle, excessive attention to his looks as well as his famous theatrics on pitch and dive-ins, is now being roasted for his half time skin care routine.
Just before the second half of the match kicked off, Neymar, who scored one goal in the first half with a penalty shot, was spotted applying what appears to be face cream, making commentators guess the purpose of the procedure.

This triggered a storm of jokes; some Twitter users pulled no punches.
Some compared Neymar to social media diva Kim Kardashian, although this wasn't the first time.

Others let their fear of clowns out.

There were those who preferred good old trashing.
He is more of a marketing boy than a footballer. He better take care of his face.— Ravi Raj (@Ravi_Raj_R) 27 сентября 2018 г.
Cake? Pie? Cocaine? 🤔— Mobin MF (@The_WhitePele) 27 сентября 2018 г.
PSG star Neymar definitely smashed his face in one of these at half-time 🤭
However, the defenders were also in, standing up for the footballer.
People who make fun of Neymar, would love to have him at their club.— Interruption (@EminemFanboi) 27 сентября 2018 г.
