BARCELONA - VALENCIA
Neymar, Alba in foul-mouthed spat during Valencia defeat
The TV programme 'El Día Después' captured a furious exchange of words between the pair as Barça went down to Los Che.Barcelona vs Deportivo La Coruña: LaLiga
Barcelona's run of one point from their last four LaLiga games has seen their lead at the top of the table wiped out - and has left tensions boiling over amongst the players.
In their 2-1 league reverse to Valencia on Sunday, the cameras of Spanish highlights show 'El Día Después' ('The Day After'), caught a furious on-field bust-up between Neymar and Jordi Alba.
Confronting Alba over his failure to pass him the ball during a move mounted by Los Azulgranas, the Brazilian is captured yelling "Go f**k yourself!" at the defender, adding: "You got a problem?"
Alba can then be seen hitting back at Neymar, pointing at the striker with his index finger and giving him an earful for his less than constructive criticism.
The defeat, Barça's third straight top-flight loss, leaves them level on points with second-placed Atlético Madrid, who knocked them out of the Champions League in midweek.
