Neymar Responds To Alvaro Gonzalez's 'Bad Loser' Jibe With Further Racism Claims
The Brazilian was one of five men sent off as PSG fell to a 1-0 defeat against Marseille in 'Le Classique' on Sunday evening.
Neymar hit Gonzalez in the back of the head and later claimed it was due to the Spaniard making a racist remark on the pitch.
Following the game, Gonzalez insisted he hadn't been racist and added PSG players couldn't take their loss on the field.
However, Neymar was quick to respond and said Gonzalez 'has no character' in a fiery rant.
Você não é homem de assumir teu erro, perder faz parte do esporte. Agora insultar e trazer o racismo pra nossas vidas não, eu não estou de acordo. EU NÃO TE RESPEITO! VOCÊ NÃO TEM CARÁTER! Assume o que tu fala mermão ... seja HOMEM RAPÁ ! RACISTA :fist:
- Neymar Jr (@neymarjr) September 14, 2020
"You are not a man to assume your mistake, losing is part of the sport," the 28-year-old begun.

"Now insulting and bringing racism into our lives no, I don't agree. I DON'T RESPECT YOU! YOU HAVE NO CHARACTER! Assume what you say mermon ... be a MAN RAPÁ! RACIST"
Gonzalez's original tweet stated: "There is no place for racism. Clean race and with many colleagues and friends on a daily basis. Sometimes you have to learn to lose and take it on the field. Incredible 3 points today. Allez l'OM. Thanks family
After hitting Gonzalez in the back of the head, Neymar regretted not 'being in the face of this asshole,' with many thinking he was referring to his opponent.
