Neymar posts tweet reacting to alleged racist abuse from Marseille player

Neymar took to Twitter immediately

Five red cards were shown in the dying minutes of Le Classique on Sunday night, as Marseille emerged from the sour episode 1-0 victors at the Parc des Princes.

A melee was provoked by a cynical foul from Darío Benedetto on PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes while the ball was in the air. Paredes got to his feet before shoving his compatriot to the ground, and all chaos ensued, as seen in the video below.

Neymar was later sent off for "punching" Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez, and the PSG forward was heard complaining to officials of racist abuse coming from the Marseille player.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has since confirmed that Neymar informed him that he was racially abused on the pitch.

Neymar has since reacted to the incident on Twitter, saying the only thing he regretted was "not hitting the idiot in the face."


He then tweeted again, saying: VAR catching my “aggression” is easy ... now I want to see the image of the racist calling me “MONO HIJO DE PUTA” (monkey motherfucker) ... that I want to see!"

Marseille manager Andre Villas-Boas said after the game that "there is no place for racism in football."
