Neymar refused to train after Paris Saint-Germain's French Cup win over Dijon earlier this month, according to L'Equipe.

The Brazilian, who should have taken place in the session with the substitutes and those not involved in the 6-1 victory, decided to remain in the dressing room with those that had started and do recovery work, going against coach Thomas Tuchel's criteria. 

The report suggests it's more than just an anecdote, given the problems Neymar has had with the club since he expressed a desire to leave last summer. The most recent problem was his silly sending off against Bordeaux, which came after his strong comments following PSG's loss to Borussia Dortmund last week. 

Shortly after the final whistle -- PSG had lost 2-1 -- Neymar blamed his lack of rhythm on the club, saying they'd forced him to sit out recent games. 

“It’s hard not to play for four games,” Neymar said. “Unfortunately it was not my choice, it came from the club, the doctors; they’re the ones who made the decision, one that I did not like.

"We’ve had a lot of discussions on that. I wanted to play, I was feeling well but the club were afraid, and in the end I’m the one suffering.”

L'Equipe say that's not the full version. They assure that the day after the win against Dijon, Neymar refused to train. 

As is usual the day after a game, the starters do recovery work and the rest, which included Neymar on this occasion, take part in a normal training session. 

According to the information, when Tuchel directed the players to the pitch, Neymar, basically, told him that he was resting and, for that reason, he would remain in the dressing room. 

The justification is that he had felt fit to feature against Dijon and was still angry at being prevented from playing.
