Neymar Accused Of Racist Remark In Marseille Game

Neymar Accused Of Racist Remark In Marseille Game

PSG forward Neymar has been accused of making a racist remark about Marseille defender Hiroki Sakai, in the match that saw the forward sent off.

The two sides played each other nine days ago, with Marseille gaining their first victory over the French champions in nine years, in a controversial match.

Five players were sent off in a scrap at the end of the match with Neymar the last of those. The Brazilian's red card came from hitting Alvaro Gonzalez at the back of the head, with the 28-year-old telling the assistant referee and the camera that he'd been racially abused, as he walked off the pitch.

Lip reading experts have claimed the video of the incident Neymar was referring to shows Gonzalez called the former Barcelona player a 'monkey.'

However Neymar could now be under investigation himself, with Spanish radio station Cadena COPE claiming the Brazilian called Japanese defender Sakai a 'Chinese s**t,' with Marseille reportedly having the images to prove the claim.

The Spanish defender had then insulted Neymar before the Brazilian got revenge by hitting the opposition player during the melee at the end of the game.

Gonzalez called the former Santos player a 'bad loser' in the aftermath of the match and there were also accusations that Angel di Maria had spat at the defender during the match.

Neymar received a two game ban for his sending off and the incident with Gonzalez is still being investigated by the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League in France.
