To say that Neymar had an eventful evening on Sunday, during the Classic against PSG, is an understatement. From the 9th minute, the PSG star offered himself a head to head with Dimitri Payet in an evening enamelled by many incidents and ended with a general fight with no less than 5 expulsions, including that of Neymar after a blow to the neck by Alvaro Gonzalez. Leaving the meadow, the former Barcelona man claimed to have been the victim of racist insults from the Spaniard.
In a statement published on Monday evening on its official website, PSG “firmly supports Neymar, who told him he had been the victim of racist insults by an opposing player”. PSG “counts on the disciplinary commission of the LFP to investigate and shed light on these facts” and claims to be “available to collaborate in the progress of the investigations”.
“The Club reminds that there is no place for racism in society, football or our lives and calls on everyone to speak out against all its manifestations all over the world. For more than 15 years, the Club has been strongly committed to the fight against all forms of discrimination alongside its partners such as SOS Racisme, Licra or Sportitude “, we can still read.
