Champions League They mocked the teams they knocked out
Paris Saint-Germain players, led by Neymar, mocked each of the opponents they eliminated during their run through the Champions League knockouts and they then paid for their actions in the final against Bayern Munich.
Humility was not one of the virtues of the French side’s players and they were taught a lesson by the Bavarians, who defeated them 1-0 on Sunday.
Here, we recall the moments when PSG players made fun of their rivals.
After their comeback at the Parc des Princes against Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, PSG players celebrated their qualification by imitating the Erling Haaland‘s celebration after his goals in the first leg.
The Norwegian striker had posted the message “My city, my rules” on his social media after the first leg, but was not particularly provocative with his yoga celebration.
However, the whole PSG squad imitated him after eliminating the German side in the last 16 with a second leg comeback.
This time, for no apparent reason, PSG‘s official account posted a picture of Maxim Choupo-Moting and titled it “Dance like Choupo”, seemingly in reference to the famous dance of Atalanta‘s Papu Gomez.
This happened after the French team knocked out the Italians from the Champions League with Choupo-Moting‘s late winner.
After eliminating RB Leipzig in the semi-finals, Neymar uploaded a picture of him with a cup of Red Bull on his social media.
“Dad is in the final,” he wrote next to the photo, which could be considered as a provocation against the German team’s majority shareholder.
