Eric Cantona absolutely rinses Neymar in latest Instagram post

Neymar rocked a freshly dyed blonde hairdo last night

He’s only been on Instagram for three days

Eric Cantona is one of the biggest characters in football. Unapologetically confident, arguably to the point of arrogance, his charisma is infectious. He also has a great sense of humour. His witty jokes were a key part of many of the Joga Bonito Nike adverts that he featured in back in the mid-noughties.

The Manchester United legend has recently joined Instagram and has brought that dry wit to his posts too, much to the delight of those who have long admired the Frenchman.

In his most recent update, he posted a picture of himself with spaghetti on his head, mocking Neymar’s new haircut.

Neymar rocked a new look last night during Brazil’s draw against Switzerland, with a freshly dyed blonde top, which got some mixed reaction.

Cantona’s savage mocking of Neymar’s hairdo was well received, as was the caption “Neymar style…spaghetti al dente!”
