Neymar offered a quite eerie response to a journalist on Friday, September 23 when he was asked about his relationship with Kylian Mbappe.

Brazil played Ghana in a pre-Wold Cup friendly, and it was the Seleção who ran out comfortable 3-0 winners on the night.

Neymar got two assist in the game as Tottenham star Richarlison bagged a brace in an evening that could have gone much worse for the Black Stars.

In a video shared by Fabrizio Romano, Neymar is seen getting a bit uncomfortable when Mbappe’s name comes up.

Initially, he says "I don't understand" in English when asked about the Frenchman.

He then goes on to say "With Kylian?" before contemplating his next words. He eventually just walks away from the interview without giving a concrete answer.

While on the surface there is nothing much to read into Neymar’s behavior, fans who have been keeping tabs on his relationship with Mbappe will have something else to say.

There were initial reports of a rift between the pair last month, and it revolved around a penalty in the 5-2 win over Montpellier.

Mbappe initially missed a penalty and when PSG got a second spot kick, Neymar insisted on taking it.
