Clemente: Barcelona duo are idiots - I'd ban them for five games

Camp Nou

The outspoken former Spain boss has slammed Neymar and Dani Alves after their celebrations last weekend.

Javier Clemente has stated that Neymar and Dani Alves are ‘idiots’ after the pair celebrated provocatively after a goal.

Barcelona beat Rayo Vallecano 6-0 last weekend, with Neymar scoring a wonderful long-range effort in the rout.

However, the former Santos man and his compatriot have been slammed by Clemente for their celebrations, which can be seen below.

The Libya coach stated that the players’ conduct was not appropriate.

"When you've just let in a goal and then four guys start acting like idiots then yes, I'd punish them,” he told Marca.

“I'd ban them for five games each. Why? For acting like idiots."

Barca may well have gone on to beat Manchester City 2-0 in the Champions League in midweek, but slumped to a 3-1 defeat to Real Sociedad on Saturday.
