Neymar With Three-Match Ban

Neymar With Three-Match Ban

Massive blow for Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain

Neymar will miss half of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League group stage games next season after being hit with a ban for his Man United comments.

Neymar found himself in hot water with UEFA after his actions following the loss to Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side staged a stunning comeback at the Parc des Princes.

Though, Man United’s winning goal came in the form of a pretty controversial penalty after VAR and the matchday referee adjudged Presnel Kimpembe to have handled the ball in the area.

Following the game, Neymar made his feelings known on social media.

“This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR,” he explained on Instagram.

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

Now, UEFA’s Control, Ethics & Disciplinary Body has made a decision over his comments.

Missing half of next years Champions League group stage

UEFA have decided to ban Neymar for three Champions League games next season.

That ban means that he will miss half of Paris Saint-Germain’s group stage games.

While we don’t know who they will be drawn in a group with, that could potentially be devastating for PSG.

UEFA’s statement, as cited by the Mirror, reads: “The CEDB has decided to suspend the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior for three (3) UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting match officials.”

Safe to say, Neymar won’t be making that mistake again.

Results have stalled and performances have dipped dramatically.

Now, to add to their woes, Paul Pogba could be on his way to Real Madrid.
