Marseille took 3 points at the Parc des Princes last night, beating PSG 1-0 in a game that saw 14 yellow and 5 red cards handed out.
During the match, Brazilian attacker Neymar accused Spanish defender Alvaro Gonzalez of racism, being picked up on the microphones multiple times saying: “Racism, no. Racism, no.”
Téléfoot Chaine reporter Gregoire Margotton later claimed that Neymar had told those around him that Gonzalez had said: “Shut your mouth, dirty monkey.”
It should be indicated that Margotton’s claims have not been verified independently at this stage, but he is one of the most respected journalists in French football.
When Neymar is sent off, he shouts down the camera on the touchline saying: “I hit [Alvaro] because he is a racist.”
After the match, Neymar took to Twitter to formalise his claims, initially saying that “I only regret not punching this a**hole in the face.”
