Neymar among five sent off as Marseille end long PSG curse

Neymar: I only regret that I didn't hit that fool in the face

Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar accuses Marseille’s Alvaro Gonzalez of tossing racist crack

Neymar continued to vent after the game, saying he wished he had gotten in Gonzalez's face to address him even more directly.

PSG voiced their support of Neymar and called for an investigation from French football's authorities, while Marseille insisted Gonzalez is not a racist and claim he has received death threats after his phone number was leaked.

The 33-year-old shared a picture of French rap group Bande Organisée, but with the members' heads replaced by those of some Marseille players and coach Andre Villas-Boas, while Neymar's head has been photoshopped onto the body of a dog being held by Alvaro Gonzalez.

A tussle between Argentine pair Dario Benedetto and Leandro Paredes quickly escalated into an all-out brawl between PSG and Marseille players, with Neymar in the thick of things. Now I want to see it pick up the image of the racist calling me a 'monkey so on a *****'. that is what I want to see!

The Brazilian was arguing with the Marseille central defender all game and claimed he was racially abused by the Spaniard in the first half.

"He told me I played lottery tonight, I told him he played lottery too against Atalanta [in last season's Champions League quarter-finals]". "Racism in life, in all domains, in sport, should not exist".

Once order was restored referee Jerome Brisard showed a straight red to Neymar, Kurzawa and Amavi for their part in the fracas, the former going following a consultation with VAR, with Paredes and Benedetto also ordered from the field after picking up second bookings. "We will have to look at everything to take a coherent stance but the situation is serious".

"Fourteen yellow cards and five reds means the match was out of control", said the Brazilian. "It's a very good win, a tough and obviously hard one", said Villas-Boas. PSG lost their opening two league games for the first time since the 1984/85 season and Tuchel may find himself under early pressure.
