Minute 74 at Sánchez Pizjuán. Change for Barça. Luis Enrique decided to put one more man on the midfield, renouncing to the three forwards on the striker line. Xavi went on for Neymar. While on the midfield Neymar shaked his head saying no. When he crossed the line that separates the limits of the field the Brazilian made a gesture with his hand like the man that asks for some reason for something that he doesn't understand. With one goal scored and a good performance he got replaced. After the last discrete moments, being on the bench against Almeria, the Brazilian was starting to recover good feelings in a hard match.
When he was on the bench, before sitting down, Barça's winger applauded with irony looking to his right. Rafinha was trying to calm him down and Neymar took off his shoes and threw them with no doubt to the inside of the bench. Ter Stegen tried to talk with him and finally Mascherano, three chairs to Neymar's left stood up, pokes him with his hand and talked with him to try to solve the tension of the situation.
During all this time Luis Enrique was standing up and with the look on the pitch. "I am only interested in what's happening on the pitch" said later in the press room after saying that he is not interested in non-senses. Asked, in the press room, about Neymar's reaction after the change. It's not the first time that Neymar is not agree with the coach for not playing the whole 90 minutes, but more than once eh expressed his will of playing the 90 minutes. Apparently, though, this is not enough for the coach to lose his nerve when he has to decide who to to play and how many minutes.
