'Regret not hitting him in the face': Neymar on Gonzalez

Neymar four others sent off in stormy Le Classique as Marseille trump PSG 1-0

"That's why I hit him", he said to camera as he was leaving the pitch.

The defeat for PSG was its second in Ligue 1 on the bounce, meaning it's now lost its first two games of the season for the first time in 36 years. I don't agree with that, it was too much.

Florian Thauvin scored in the only goal of the game in the 31st minute.

The world's most expensive footballer at £198 million (S$347.5 million) tweeted: "You are not a man to assume your mistake, losing is part of the sport".

After the match, Neymar doubled down on his accusations against Gonzalez, saying on Twitter that the Spaniard had called him a "monkey" and that his only regret was not punching the Marseille defender in the face.

After eventually walking off, Neymar remonstrated to the fourth official, explaining he hit out because a racist comment was made.

It came four minutes after his teammates, Lavyin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes, and OM's Dario Benedetto and Jordan Amavi were given their marching orders.

Cowboys' late drive against Rams thwarted over questionable offensive pass interference call
Clearly we were in field goal range and it was three-point game. "It feels good having them back in we have a good crowd today". We had a couple costly penalties, that we have to be able to avoid moving forward, but overall, I liked the way we came out.

Claiming that there is no place for racism, Gonzalez has broken his silence on Neymar's allegation and said that "sometimes one needs to learn to lose". "We will have to look at everything to take a coherent stance but the situation is serious".

However, PSG sporting director Leonardo suggested referee Jerome Brisard lacked the experience to officiate such a highly-charged fixture.

Five red cards, along with 14 yellows, were flashed during the game, which ended in an ugly brawl.

A frenzied schedule awaits Tuchel's coronavirus-hit side, starting with the visit of Metz in midweek and a trip to Nice next Sunday, and Neymar now faces a suspension.

Neymar was at the center of a massive brawl that resulted in a number of red cards, with the Brazilian sensation among those dismissed from the contest.

Having been excused from duty for the first two rounds of 2020-21 due to their exertions in the delayed Champions League knockout stages, Thomas Tuchel's men were back in action this weekend as they welcomed l'OM to Parc des Princes.
