PSG supports Neymar, who accuses Álvaro González of racism

Paris Saint-Germain issued a statement in which it sent a message of support to its footballer, Neymar, who accused Álvaro González of being a racist in yesterday's game.


Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) showed its support for Brazilian striker Neymar on Monday, who complained that the Spanish defender of Olympique de Marseille Álvaro González made racist comments to him in Sunday's game, which the Parisians lost by 0- 1.

"The club underlines that there is no place for racism in society, football and our lives, and asks that everyone speak out against all kinds of racism," he said in a statement. PSG stressed that for more than 15 years it has collaborated with associations such as SOS Racisme, Licra and Sportitude in the fight against "all kinds of discrimination", and trusted that the Professional Football League (LFP) will clarify what happened.

"Now I want to see the image of the racist calling me 'monkey son of a p ***' ... I was expelled, what about him?" Said on Twitter Neymar, who received a red card after those responsible for the VAR asked the match referee to review an image in which he repeatedly slapped González's head.

For his part, the central defender of Marseille has denied having had such racist behavior: "There is no place for racism. Clean race and with many colleagues and friends on a daily basis," he said.

The match, which marked OM's first victory over PSG since 2011, ended with the expulsions of Neymar, Kurzawa and Argentine Paredes by the Parisian team and Amavi and the Argentine Darío Benedetto by the Marseillais.

The LFP will meet this Wednesday to decide the sanctions for those five players expelled from the match and determine the number of matches from which they could be banned.
