Neymar accuses Alvaro Gonzalez of racism, Di Maria spits on the defender

Chaos engulfed the Parc des Princes on Sunday evening as Paris Saint-Germain lost 1-0 to Marseille.Very few people were talking about the result at the end though as five players were sent off in stoppage time, including Neymar.

Angel Di Maria wasn’t one of the five, however, despite Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez accusing the Argentine of having spat on him.This came after Alvaro and Neymar had had a coming together, while later in the match the Spaniard was involved in more drama as he was punched in the back of the head by Neymar, who told the fourth official that Alvaro had racially abused him as he was making his way off the pitch after receiving a red card.

Alvaro Gonzalez has since responded to these racist claims saying “there is no place for racism”.

Marseille coach Villas-Boas also seems to think Alvaro did not racially abuse Neymar.
