Paris- Saint Germain star Neymar and Marseille’s Alvaro Gonzalez have been in war of words on social media following Sunday’s ill-tempered match between their clubs.
PSG suffered their second consecutive defeat of the campaign after going down 1-0 against Marseille at the Parc des Princes.
Neymar was among the five players sent off in the game after VAR found that he had thrown a punch at Gonzalez.
The Brazilian alleged that Gonzalez was racially abusive towards him resulted in him throwing a punch at his rival.
Before uncovering what Gonzalez had allegedly called him on the field, Neymar also tweeted: ‘My only regret is not hitting that a**** in the face.”
The Saniard responded to the allegation on social media, labelling Neymar a ‘bad loser’ before the Brazilian responded to Gonzalez’s denial of the allegation.
“There is no place for racism… Sometimes you have to learn to lose and take it on the field.
:Incredible 3 points today. Allez l’OM. Thanks family,” Gonzalez tweeted alongside a picture of himself with his team-mates.
“You are not a man to assume your mistake, losing is part of the sport.
“Now insulting and bringing racism into our lives no, I don’t agree,’ Neymar responded on Twitter.
“‘I DON’T RESPECT YOU! YOU HAVE NO CHARACTER! Assume what you say mermon … be a MAN RAPÁ! RACIST”
