Former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, Edouard Cisse has launched a scathing attack on Brazil star Neymar, describing the forward as a "spoilt brat" and that the player "bosses everyone around".

Cisse who played for PSG for a decade between 1997 and 2007 has gone on to explain why the Brazilian star fared better at Barcelona than for his current club and that being handed the power in Paris has gone to his head.

At Barcelona there was a structure. [Neymar] had a cleaner style of play, although he dribbled more. His job was to break the defensive line, make the difference and pass the ball to General [Lionel] Messi. He did it so well that he became his 'alter ego'," Cisse told Le Parisien.

"In Paris, they gave him the keys and they let him do what he wanted. In one moment, he was lost. He is a great player, no one can dispute that, but he has become a spoilt brat and he bosses everyone around," he added.

Neymar who moved to PSG from Barcelona in a world record move has been brilliant when fit, scoring 88 goals in 123 appearances, but he has come in for criticism over his lifestyle off the pitch.
