WTF: Neymar appears to hump training mannequin in practice

WTF: Neymar appears to hump training mannequin in practice

The Champions League nights are finally back. 

And the return comes with a grand attraction, the highly awaited fixture between Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. 

The sheer names who’ll be on display during the affair sum up the amount of pressure riding on this game, keeping aside the knockout aspect of it. 

Undoubtedly, players on either side are hard at work preparing for the first bout at Parc Des Princes, and among those is Brazilian superstar Neymar. 

In a bit of training footage that surfaced from the PSG camp, the forward can be seen doing something very.. peculiar, during his training routines. 

In the short clip, Neymar firstly skips past two poles and jogs on towards a training dummy. 

He then channels his inner Ronaldo (or Simeone) and proceeds to thrust his hips while holding the dummy. 

If we keep beating around the bush aside, he essentially humps the plastic figure before continuing the rest of the drill. 

Naturally, this led to some confusion among users on Twitter. 

The 30-year-old is known for being a playful character at times and this is probably just another example. 

Nevertheless, the Brazilian looked hard at work preparing for the awaited encounter against the Spanish giants. 

And if the Parisiens are to earn advantage for the second leg, they will need their Number 10 firing on all cylinders.
