Neymar accuses Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez of racism

Brazilian superstar Neymar has accused defender Alvaro Gonzalez of racism following their Sunday scuffle at the Parc des Princes.

There were five red cards dished in extra time in the game as both PSG and Marseille players had to be separated in a game that was won by the latter; Neymar being one of the players who was sent off.

During the match, Brazilian attacker Neymar accused Spanish defender Alvaro Gonzalez of racism, being picked up on the microphones multiple times saying: “Racism, no. Racism, no.”

Téléfoot Chaine reporter Gregoire Margotton later claimed that Neymar had told those around him that Gonzalez had said: “Shut your mouth, dirty monkey.”

Asked about the incident Marseille boss Villas-Boas said: “It would be a totally unacceptable thing if that happened, but I do not think so. What we saw, what was visible, was Di Maria spitting (on Alvaro)… but anyway these are things that we must avoid in football.”

Neymar took to Twitter on Sunday night to formalise his claims, initially saying that “I only regret not punching this a**hole in the face.”

He later followed this up with another Tweet, in which he claimed that Marseille defender Alvaro called him “a son of a b**** monkey.”
