Andy Delort is the walking embodiment of hypocrisy.
Back in December, the Montpellier HSC striker had a heated exchange with Neymar Jr. in the tunnel after Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-1 win.
Essentially, Delort took issue with Neymar’s showboating and said that “it’s a real shame that towards the end he felt the need to antagonize everyone.”

The Frenchman went on to say that Neymar has to show respect and that his attitude is “well known since he came to France.”
It’s funny that Delort talks about respect. In 2018, he was arrested for allegedly insulting a police officer after being involved in a car chase according to Midi Libre (via Get French Football News).
“I don’t give a ****, I earn €150K a month,” Delort allegedly said to the officers.
On the eve of the rematch between Montpellier and PSG at the Parc des Princes, Delort is in the news once again talking about Neymar and, surprisingly, Leandro Paredes. Here are some of his comments via Le Parisien:
On clash with Neymar back in December…
“Something happened while returning to the locker room. And it made the buzz because it was him. Whether it’s Neymar or someone else, I don’t care. He remains a man and an extraordinary player. But he doesn’t need to mock his opponents. He won 3-1 at the Mosson with a free-kick. It’s good. I reproached him for his somewhat haughty attitude. It was important to me to tell him in front of him. Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] could make statements in the media, but on the ground, at least, he was hyper-respectful.”
On reunion with Neymar and PSG…
“We’ll see how he looks at me. I’m not afraid of anyone. But the worst in Paris is Paredes. It’s amazing how he talks. He insults everyone on the ground. And yet his name is Paredes. Not Neymar…”
