Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has responded to claims that he gets paid a bonus for simply applauding his club's supporters after matches.
Reports surfaced last week via Football Leaks that the Brazilian has a clause in his contract with PSG that sees him pick up a monetary bonus if he claps for his team's fans at the end of games.
It was said Neymar earns about €375 000 (R6 million) a season for the gesture, but after seeing what was being written about him, the 26-year-old denied the speculation via an Instagram post.
"I do not know what is worse ..." he wrote on Instagram, according to ESPN.
"The source or those who respond. A bunch of misinformed idiots.
"I am tired of the ill-intentioned press.
"Thank you, God, for every litre of patience that you give me."
Neymar has scored 13 goals and assisted a further six strikes in 16 games across all competitions for Les Parisiens so far this season.
