THIAGO SILVA sent Neymar an X-rated message after the Paris Saint-Germain star was named the best Brazilian player in Europe again.
Neymar scooped the honour for a record-breaking fifth time following another impressive year for the Ligue 1 leaders.
But Neymar's Brazilian team-mate Silva was less than impressed that he had been overlooked as he joked the ex-Barcelona man was responsible for him not collecting the Samba Gold award.
Neymar shared an Instagram reply he had received from Silva after posing with the trophy.
The Chelsea man said: "After you arrived in Europe I didn't win anymore! F**k you hahahahahahahaha."
Silva won the honour three years in a row between 2011 and 2013.
But since Neymar arrived in Europe after signing for Barca nine years ago, the centre-back has failed to claim it for a fourth time.
The forward swooped the gong in 2014 and 2015, before Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho won it in 2016.

Neymar then reclaimed it in 2017 just a few months prior to his world record transfer to PSG.
Reds duo Robert Firmino and Alisson took home the award in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
But Neymar has now won it on back-to-back occasions yet again for his performances in 2020 and 2021.
The 29-year-old has netted a minimum of 17 goals in each of his four complete seasons with the French giants.
But in the current campaign he has managed just three goals in 14 appearances.

Meanwhile off the field, Neymar recently went public with stunning girlfriend Bruna Biancardi.
The pair were snapped together in Ibiza last August, and the Brazilian beauty even travelled with Neymar back to their native country for Christmas.
Biancardi also posed for photos alongside the wives of Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain team-mates Angel Di Maria, Marco Verratti, Leandro Paredes and Lionel Messi.
And in November Biancardi was present at PSG's game against Nantes alongside the injured star.
