Neymar on Friday was suspended for three Champions League matches by UEFA for a foul-mouthed tirade at match officials following Paris Saint-Germain´s shock exit from this season´s tournament to Manchester United.
The Brazil star missed the 3-1 Champions League second leg last 16 defeat on March 6 through injury, but told match officials “to go fuck yourselves” on social media after watching on from the sidelines at the Parc des Princes.
Neymar was found guilty of “insulting/molesting acts against match official”, European football´s governing body announced in a statement after opening an inquiry into his outburst on March 22.
“It´s a disgrace. They get four guys who don´t understand football to watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV,” Neymar wrote in Portuguese on Instagram after the game.
Neymar was reportedly so enraged by the decision to give the penalty that he had to be restrained by PSG staff to stop him entering the referee´s dressing room.
