UEFA to charge Neymar over negative referee comments

UEFA is looking into a case with Neymar after the Paris Saint-Germain forward angrily reacted to his side’s Champions League elimination to Manchester United on Instagram.

Neymar criticized the refereeing performance of Damir Skomina, the Slovenian match official who awarded the English side a controversial penalty in stoppage-time.

Marcus Rashford converted the spot-kick to send United through on away goals.

“It’s a disgrace,” Neymar wrote on Instagram, coupled with a photo of the Presnel Kimpembe penalty incident.

“They even put four people who don’t understand football watching the incident in slow motion. This is unreal!” The Brazil international footballer continued.

“How can [Kimpembe] use his hand with his back [to the ball]?

“Ah fu*k off.”

UEFA have now opened disciplinary proceedings against Neymar for “insulting/molesting acts match officials”.The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body with the date of the hearing yet to be confirmed
