Neymar and Alvaro Gonzalez have continued their war of words on social media after the PSG star accused his rival of racism during the French giant’s feisty clash with Marseille.
OM ran out 1-0 winners in a heated derby that saw five players sent off while 12 others were given yellow cards after a mass brawl broke out during the game at the Parc des Princes.
And Neymar was sent off after VAR found that he had thrown a punch at Gonzalez, before the Brazilian insisted that the Marseille defender was racially abusive towards him.
Neymar and Alvaro Gonzalez have continued their war of words on social media on Monday
The Brazilian was one of five players sent off in a feisty derby between PSG and Marseille
The 28-year-old alleges that Gonzalez called him a ‘monkey motherf*****’, which infuriated the £208m star and resulted in him throwing a punch at his rival.
Television footage and a pitchside microphone appear to have caught Neymar pointing at the centre back in question and shouting: ‘Racism, no?’
‘VAR catching my “aggression” is easy… now I want to see the image of the racist calling me a monkey motherf*****,’ he tweeted after the game.
Before uncovering what Gonzalez had allegedly called him on the field, Neymar also tweeted: ‘My only regret is not hitting that a****** in the face.’

The Spaniard responded to the allegation on social media, labelling Neymar a ‘bad loser’ before the Brazilian responded to Gonzalez’s denial of the allegation.
‘There is no place for racism… Sometimes you have to learn to lose and take it on the field. Incredible 3 points today. Allez l’OM. Thanks family,’ Gonzalez tweeted alongside a picture of himself with his team-mates.
‘You are not a man to assume your mistake, losing is part of the sport. Now insulting and bringing racism into our lives no, I don’t agree,’ Neymar responded on Twitter.
Neymar said he has no respect for the Marseille defender after his alleged racial slur
‘I DON’T RESPECT YOU! YOU HAVE NO CHARACTER! Assume what you say mermon … be a MAN RAPÁ! RACIST’.
Andre Villas-Boas, the Marseille boss, said he hoped that racism had not further marred the clash. He told Telefoot: ‘I do not know, I hope not, I hope that nothing has happened’.
Neymar and Gonzalez’s clash came in the midst of a mass brawl that was sparked by Marseille’s Dario Benedetto and PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes following a challenge with the visitors leading by a single goal.
The attempts to restore calm from the man in the middle fell on deaf ears. Layvin Kurzawa and Jordan Amavi were also caught striking out at each other with punches, with referee Jerome Brisard showing the pair straight red cards too.

Paredes and Benedetto were the next players banished back inside after picking up their second bookings.
PSG’s run to the final of last season’s elongated Champions League saw them allowed two extra weeks to prepare for the new Ligue 1 term.
Thomas Tuchel will have been left speechless after his team’s horror start, however.
A depleted side, ravaged by positive Covid-19 tests, fell to a slender defeat against Lens on Thursday, and Marseille were able to inflict further misery despite Neymar featuring in this one.
The hosts were forced to play out the dying stages of the tempestuous encounter with eight men, with Marseille reduced to nine.
Thauvin’s goal on 31 minutes proved enough to ensure PSG remain in the drop zone.
