“I am sad to see the feeling of hatred that can be provoked when we revolt in the heat”, writes in Portuguese and in English the Brazilian striker, while maintaining his accusations of racism against the Spaniard of OM .
“Should I have ignored it?” I still don’t know … Today, with a clear head, I think so, but at the time my teammates and I asked the referees for help, and we were ignored. That’s the subject! ”, Justified the star of PSG.
During this sulphurous match, marked at the end of the match by the exclusion of five players, including Neymar for slapping Alvaro Gonzalez in the back of the head, the Brazilian striker of PSG complained to the referees, repeating to many times “racismo, no!” (“racism, no!”, in Spanish), pointing to the Spanish defender.
PSG gave their support to their star who, after the match, had violently attacked Alvaro Gonzalez on social networks: “My only regret is not having hit that asshole in the face,” he had hot written on Twitter.
A reaction on and off the pitch that Neymar says he now regrets. “Yesterday, I got lost in the match and I lacked wisdom,” said Neymar, who sees an “obligation” in “pacifying this anti-racist movement so that the less privileged can be defended naturally”.
The disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) will look from Wednesday on the five red cards distributed at the end of the match to determine the number of suspension matches incurred by Parisians Neymar, Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes, and by Marseillais Dario Benedetto and Jordan Amavi.
