Paris St-Germain will “strongly support” their Brazilian playmaker Neymar after he said he was racially abused by Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez.
Neymar was the last of five red cards in Sunday’s bad-tempered Ligue 1 match, sent off for hitting Gonzalez.
On Twitter, Neymar accused his opponent of racism and urged the authorities to use VAR to clarify matters.
Marseille have made a statement saying Gonzalez is not racist.
PSG said there was
“no place for racism in society, football or in our lives”.
In a short statement issued on Monday, the French champions said the club
“looks forward to [French governing body] the LFP’s disciplinary commission investigating and ascertaining the facts”.
“The club remains at the LFP’s disposal for any assistance required,” the statement added.
