Neymar claims he was racially abused by Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar says he regrets not hitting ‘a*****e’ Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez in the face after the Brazilian claims he was racially abused by the Spaniard.

Neymar was one of five players to see red in the final minute in Paris as a brawl broke out between the two sides.

PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes was sent off for hitting out at Darío Benedetto, which sparked a scuffle between the two teams. After facing up to one another, full-back Layvin Kurzawa saw red after repeatedly hitting Jordan Amavi, who was also given his marching orders for kicking the Frenchman.

After all four players were sent off, Neymar was shown a red following a VAR review. The review showed that the Brazilian had hit Gonzalez on the back of the head while the Spanish defender was looking elsewhere.

Neymar sarcastically applauded the referee as he left the field and he was heard telling the assistant referee that he was racially abused on the touchline.

The Brazilian claimed that he was on the receiving end of a racist comment and ‘that’s why I did it’, while he shouted: ‘I hit [Alvaro] because he is a racist’ down the camera.

Neymar posted a series of tweets after the match in which he went into more detail and he subsequently claimed that Gonzalez called him a ‘monkey motherf****r’ during the match.

‘VAR catching my “aggression” is easy,’ said Neymar.

‘Now I want to see the image of the racist calling me “MONO HIJO DE PUTA” (monkey motherfucker) … that I want to see! What’s up?

‘I do a rainbow flick you punish me .. For a little slap I am expelled … what about them? What’s up ?’

When Neymar mentions a ‘rainbow flick’, he’s referring to an incident in 2017 when he was yellow carded after performing the skill in a game against Montpellier.
