Neymar faces UEFA investigation after foul-mouthed rant

Neymar is facing a Uefa investigation after posting a foul-mouthed message on Instagram following the Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League defeat by Manchester United last week.

A furious Neymar has to be restrained from confronting the referee after the 3-1 defeat, which secured United progression to the quarter-finals on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate result.

Posting in his Instagram story, Neymar said: “This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR,” he said.

“There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back?! Go f**k yourselves!”

Uefa have now announced that the Brazilian is under investigation for his outburst.

A statement from Uefa read: “In accordance with the Article 31 (3) (a) of the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations, 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 2018/19 Uefa Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United FC, played on 6 March 2019 in France.”
