It looks like Neymar Jr.’s selfie prank prompted some of his Paris Saint-Germain teammates to plot a sinister prank in retaliation.
At the Camp des Loges on Tuesday, with the team preparing for a Coupe de la Ligue semi-final match against Stade de Reims the following evening, Neymar Jr. innocently went to his locker only to discover a black plastic snake sitting on his clothes.

The Brazilian noticeably jumps and then curses at his teammates before laughing at the entire situation.
In the video, which is a compilation of Instagram Stories from Neymar and Leandro Paredes, you can see Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi casually waiting for Neymar to discover the surprise inside his locker.
One can only assume that Paredes orchestrated the prank as he’s the one recording the incident from the beginning. Although, Manchester United supporters would probably point to Di Maria as being the one to come up with the snake idea…
The video is a fascinating look at the dynamics inside the locker room. The South American contingency clearly gets along and it’s great that a role player like Paredes feels like he can pull a prank on Neymar who took the joke very well.
I hope that when Neymar’s Netflix documentary is released that we get to see some kind of season-long prank war between the players.
