PSG fans troll Gerard Pique over Neymar deal with 'Se Queda' on shirts
PSG fans have been quick to mock Gerard Pique after the defender took to social media to declare that Neymar wouldn't be leaving Barcelona roughly one week before the Brazil superstar moved to France in a world-record deal.
As speculation swirled as to Neymar's immediate future, Pique posted a photo of the pair together on Twitter, along with the caption "Se Queda" -- "He's staying."

Just 11 days later, PSG went and made the move official, with Neymar signing a five-year deal at the Parc des Princes to complete his enormous €222 million transfer.
Alas, the requisite paperwork wasn't filed in time for the 25-year-old striker to make his debut in PSG's opening match of the season, a 2-0 victory over Amiens.

Still, their fans took the opportunity to poke fun at Pique's error of judgement, with several customised shirts bearing the words "Se Queda" above Neymar's No.10 squad number appearing in the stands.
It's a fairly expensive way of making fun of Pique, but the effort is to be applauded!
