Barcelona midfielder Paulinho inflicted injury on Neymar during Brazil training after producing a late tackle, and Barcelona fans loved it according to report from Mirror Sport.
Neymar left the Nou Camp in the summer joining Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of £199million.
However, the former Tottenham player joined Ernesto Valverde’s side for £36.4 million after impressing for Guangzhou Evergrande in China, though his move to Barca was frowned at by some media.
The duo of Neymar and Paulinho got together this week on international duty ahead of Brazil’s 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
Mirror Sport further reported that hearts were in mouths for Brazil fans when Neymar appeared to pick up an injury from a late Paulinho challenge.
The world’s most expensive footballer was left grimacing and clutching his foot while surrounded by members of the national team’s staff.
