Brazillian forward and PSG foward neymar junior got a straight Red card during the match with marseille 1.0 win following the attercation with marseille center half alvaro gonzalez at the parc de princes in paris.
Neymar was sent off following a VAR replay he aimed a jab to alvaro gozalez back head. As he was going out neymar told officials that he was racially abused.
“It’s a serious wrongdoing if that’s the case but I don’t think so,” Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas said. “What we saw, what was visible, is that (Angel) Di Maria spat (on Gonzalez).”
With apparent reference to Gonzalez, Neymar tweeted afterwards: “The only regret I have is not hitting the face of this idiot.” In a later tweet, Neymar said “It is easy for the VAR (video review) to see my ‘aggression’” and added he was subjected to offensive insults of a racist nature.
“Neymar told me that it was a racist insult. I didn’t hear anything on the field,” PSG coach Thomas Tuchel said. “Racism in life, in all domains, in sport, should not exist.”
it was marseille first victory over PSG since 3.0 home since November 2011
