The former world’s most expensive player who plays for Paris Saint Germain now, Neymar, once again raised controversy after being proven for beating one of the spectators inside the stadium.
Through his brutal action, Neymar officially got a sanction ban playing in the next three matches. The bad thing happened when the match against Rennes in the final of the Coupe de France at the end of last April, Neymar was caught on camera trying to avoid a cellphone belonging to an audience who was recording the target Neymar.
Knowing that action, Neymar approached the audience and both of them were involved in an argument before the Brazilian national team star was seen directing his hand to the face of the audience. Before going any further, Neymar’s teammate managed to stop the incident.
As the French Football Federation which protects all laws, the player’s attitude finally announced that Neymar was banned from playing in three domestic matches. Not only stop there, Neymar also got a ban on matches in two suspended matches.
This sentence has been running from now on, and that means Neymar will miss against Angers on Saturday (11/5) tonight in the French Ligue 1 final. If dissected as a whole, then Neymar will miss the remaining two games of PSG this season.
Not only that, the former Barcelona player is also certain to miss the Trophee des Champions versus Rennes in August 2019. PSG as the club’s Neymar reacted immediately by planning to appeal, PSG’s firm attitude was stated in a statement on its official website.
“PSG respects the decision of the French Football Federation’s Discipline Commission to punish Neymar with a five-game ban, and three have already been set. With consideration of seeing the interference that PSG players other than Neymar got at the end of the final Coupe de France match, and the various elements that PSG sent to the Commission, PSG considered the sanctions too heavy, ”
“PSG and Neymar have decided to appeal this decision to the FFF Appeal Commission,” PSG said.
If backwards, then the sanction that Neymar gets is not the first time. Before this, Neymar had also been banned from playing three matches by UEFA because his comments after PSG were eliminated by Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League.
Since joining PSG, Neymar’s attitude has been questioned. He claimed to have changed and was getting worse in attitude, different when he was still in Barcelona. As a role model for young players, Neymar should be able to set a good example as a professional soccer player.
