PSG fans attack Pique following Neymar's transfer from BarcaShare:
Paris Saint Germain fans have a message for Gerard Pique as they bought thousands of Neymar's shirts following the Brazillian's unveil.
Little did Gerrard Pique knew that he will be shooting himself in the leg when he tweeted in July that Neymar would be staying at Barcelona. That particular tweet has now been retweeted over 161,000 times on Twitter following the Brazilian's world-record £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain.

After the transfer to PSG was complete, fans of the Paris club have bought Neymar shirts by the thousands. Javier Pastore had surrendered the number to Neymar because he wanted the forward to help the club win that one elusive trophy - the Champions League.
But a select few have not put Neymar's name on the back. They have gone with the phrase 'Se Queda' instead.

Se Quedapas translates to 'Stay Put'.
As if Neymar's transfer to PSG wasn't cruel enough, PSG fans are now rubbing it in with this latest stunt. As many as 10,000 Neymar shirts were sold on the first day alone.
When questioned about the tweet, Neymar admitted that he had asked Pique not to post it on Twitter as he had not yet made up his mind on his future at that point in time.
"It was a relaxed moment, we were having lunch together and he posted a picture," Neymar explained. "We were just having fun. I told him not to!
"I was thinking about so many things at the time but he wanted to make that joke and express his feelings. I respect that."
