Lip Reading Experts Reveal What Álvaro González Said To Neymar

Lip Reading Experts Reveal What Álvaro González Said To Neymar

By Mike Parrott

Lip reading experts have revealed what Álvaro González said to Neymar in their verbal altercation when Paris Saint-Germain faced Marseille. Neymar was sent off for the altercation but shouldn't have in hindsight.

The Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille game that occurred on September 13th, last weekend, will be remembered infamously for the altercation in stoppage time.

With Layvin Kurzawa, Leandro Paredes, and Neymar sent-off for PSG, and Jordan Amavi and Dario Benedetto sent off for Marseille, much has been said about the insane few minutes.

However, Neymar's sending off seemed out of fashion for a player like him. Until reports came out that Álvaro González had been racially abusing Neymar throughout the game.

Still in the first half after a disagreement, Neymar accused the defender of racism. However, the referee didn't believe any of it so didn't caution Gonzalez. The discussions continued throughout the game and only ended with the expulsion of the Brazilian striker, in the final stage, when he ended up attacking Álvaro González before leaving.

However according to three lip-reading experts, Neymar was called 'mono', which in Spanish translates to Monkey.

They were: Luis Felipe Ramos, who is part of the Rio de Janeiro Deaf Association, and Felipe Oliver and Mikel Vidal, translators who work for the National Institute of Deaf Education.

Oliver said: "He speaks the word 'mono' in Spanish, the moment he even speaks and turns his mouth."

The Brazilian publication were unable to see the words out of Gonzalez' mouth before 'mono'.

Neymar didn't come out of the argument unscathed however, with Oliver confirming that Neymar had said a homophobic offense towards the defender.

PSG have prepared to fight for Neymar to be cleared of his two-game suspension due to the racial attack on him. If González is punished, he can face up to 10 games suspended.
