MIKAEL LUSTIG insists his favourite actor Neymar will never be loved like his former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi.
The Celtic defender believes the Brazilian’s diving and pathetic refusal to shake hands with Anthony Ralston show why the 25-year-old struggles to win admiration from neutrals.
Lustig said: “It was the same as usual from Neymar. He is an unbelievable footballer, but we have seen the other stuff before and we will see it again.
“I have said before that it’s part of his game. He tries to over-react a bit to make the defender step off. We will see it again and again.
“If he wants to be liked as much as Messi, maybe he needs to stop that.
“He’s up there with the best already – he’s so sharp and is an amazing footballer.”
Lustig added: “PSG are probably up there with the very best teams I have faced. They have world-class players in every position.
“They are probably better than Barcelona last year with no weak links. Every single player is unbelievable on the ball.
“If you spend a lot of money, it is no shock you will have a team like that. But we were poor in the first-half.
“We didn’t look like ourselves. Now the games with Anderlecht are key.”
