Neymar spar with Marseille’s Gonzalez for alleged racist abuse

Sports Lounge Staff




Paris: Neymar was involved in a heated war of words with Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez over alleged racist abuse.

The Brazilian accused Gonzalez of calling him a “monkey” in PSG’s 1-0 defeat in Ligue 1. The drama then carried over to Twitter, with the PSG superstar labelling the Marseille player a racist.

The ugly altercation between the pair kicked off in the final minutes of the weekend showdown. A total of five players were sent off, including Neymar who was caught by VAR punching Gonzalez in the back of the head.

The Brazilian accused the Gonzalez of racism and made sure to make the fourth official aware of this.

“I only regret that I didn’t hit that a**hole in the face,” was Neymar’s initial tweet.

The Brazilian went into more details in a later tweet, writing: “VAR spotting my ‘attack’ is easy.

“Now I want to see it pick up the image of the racist calling me a ‘monkey son of a b**ch’… that is what I want to see!

“And then? I do a rainbow flick, you punish me. For a slap, I get sent off. What about them?

Neymar continued his war with the center-back, going all out with his reply.

“You are not a man to assume your mistake, losing is part of the sport. Now insulting and bringing racism into our lives no, I don’t agree,’ the former Barcelona ace responded.

“I DON’T RESPECT YOU! YOU HAVE NO CHARACTER! Assume what you say mermon … be a MAN RAPÁ! RACIST.”
