The chaos involving Neymar Jr and Alvaro Gonzalez in the Ligue 1 match between PSG and Marseille continued off the field. After Neymar made his comments on Twitter, it was the Marseille player’s turn to reply to the tweet.
As is known, PSG has indeed been humiliated by Marseille in the first match of French Ligue 1 this season. The weekend match at the Parc des Princes ended with a score of 0-1.
However, it was not PSG’s defeat that was in the spotlight, it was the chaotic incident between the two players in the second half. The players of both camps seemed to be arguing, even forcing the referee to issue two red cards.
Neymar is one of the players who argued with the Marseille player, Alvaro Gonzalez. The Brazilian player even slapped Gonzalez on the back of the head, because he felt annoyed at being called a “monkey”.
Before leaving, Neymar had complained to the fourth referee on the sidelines. He said that he got a racist statement from Alvaro Gonzalez.
Not satisfied there, after the match the former Barcelona star uploaded a tweet on Twitter. He admitted that he regretted not releasing a strong punch in the face of the Spanish player.
Hearing Neymar’s tweet, Gonzalez did not seem to be silent. He even accused Neymar of not accepting the defeat swallowed up by Paris Saint-Germain.
“There is no place for racism. A clean race with lots of peers and friends every day. Sometimes you have to learn to lose and accept it on the pitch. Three great points. Allez l’OM, thank you family,” he wrote.
Apart from this controversy, it is clear that Paris Saint-Germain is indeed in a bad condition. They have yet to win their first two Ligue 1 matches in the 2020/21 season.
In the first party against Lens, Thomas Tuchel’s men were defeated with a final score of 0-1. As a result, the defending champion is now ranked 18th in the standings.
However, this result is reasonable for PSG considering a number of important players are absent, including Neymar who did not play in the match against Lens. Some names cannot appear because they have contracted the Corona virus.
Mbappe and Icardi were among the players absent due to the Covid-19.
