And the Marseille defender has opened up about their dispute, saying the Brazilian forward told him he earns his salary in one day.
Speaking to Onda Cero, he revealed: "Neymar told me he won in one day what I earn in a year, and it's true. I told him I was very happy with my salary.

The Spaniard continued by insisting that he did not make any racist insults towards Neymar.

No existe lugar para el racismo. Carrera limpia y con muchos compañeros y amigos en el día a día. A veces hay que aprender a perder y asumirlo en el campo. Increibles 3 puntos hoy. Allez l'OM:blue_heart: Gracias familia:white_circle::m::raised_hands: pic.twitter.com/4DuUT1PT0x
