From the stands, PSG star ace could not stomach his side loosing to Manchester United, he was very furious and took it on social media to express his anger using explicit language and swear words that have since got the ear of FIFA.
UEFA have opened an investigation into Neymar’s social media comments after PSG’s defeat to Manchester United .
The Brazilian launched an astonishing foul-mouthed rant at the officials in the wake of United’s 3-1 victory last week.
“This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR,” he said on Instagram .
“There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back?! Go f**k yourselves!”
A UEFA statement read: “UEFA has today announced that it has appointed an Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector to conduct an investigation regarding the comments made on social media by the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior, following the UEFA Champions League match between PSG & Man Utd.”
The 27-year-old, who missed the tie because of injury, was incensed after officials awarded United a spot-kick for a handball by Presnel Kimpembe deep into stoppage time, which Marcus Rashford then coolly converted to send the Premier League side through to the quarter-finals.
“This is a disgrace, they put four people who know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR,” the Brazilian wrote on Instagram. “It’s just not possible!!! How is a guy going to hold his hand behind his back. Go fuck yourselves.”
PSG had won the first leg 2-0 but found themselves out of the competition on away goals after the tie finished 3-3. The exit, however devastating, will not lead to a kneejerk reaction to fire coach Thomas Tuchel, club president Nasser al-Khelaifi said after the game.
“I’m very disappointed with the result and the game. I don’t understand how we lost,” he said. “We gave them everything to win. It was easy for them. I don’t understand.”
