Alvaro Gonzalez Tried To Kick Neymar In The Head, Ended Up Going Off Injured

Alvaro Gonzalez Tried To Kick Neymar In The Head, Ended Up Going Off Injured

Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez's attempts to hurt Neymar went badly wrong as he ended up injuring himself.

The two renewed their bitter rivalry in last night's Le Classique, where PSG won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe.

But round three between the pair didn't last too long in the end. Neymar was a second half substitute in the fixture and mere seconds after entering the fray he sent the Spaniard back to Espanyol by destroying him down the left wing.

In response, Gonzalez then tried to kick Neymar but failed and the foot-race continued towards goal. Gonzalez then stood on Neymar's foot in the box and was very fortunate to not give away a penalty.

However, he badly hurt himself in making the tackle and ended up having to be substituted. Karma, or poetic justice, if you were.

Neymar Reveals The Shocking Racist Abuse He Allegedly Received From Alvaro Gonzalez

published at7 months ago

Former West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet was sent off for Marseille after horribly mistiming a tackle on Marco Verratti late on.

Back in September, Neymar was one of five players sent off against Marseille after he struck Gonzalez on the back of the head.

Both accused one another of using racial slurs but a lack of evidence meant neither ended up getting punished.

When they met again in the Trophee des Champions last month, Neymar scored the decisive goal from the spot and poked fun at Alvaro on social media.

A back and forth Twitter exchange saw Gonzalez say that "my parents always taught me to take out the trash" and that Neymar was living in Pele's shadow.

Having the last word, Neymar wrote: "And you're in my shadow. Made you famous...you're welcome."
