neymar accused of homophobic slur against alvaro gonzalez

PSG star Neymar has been accused of making a homophobic slur during his confrontation with Marseille’s Alvaro Gonzalez after the Brazilian alleged he’d been racially abused.

The furious fall-out from Sunday night’s Ligue 1 fixture took another twist when a Spanish television network used subtitles to suggest Neymar called Gonzalez a ‘f***ing queer’ during a first-half exchange.

The clip was shared widely on social media by Marseille fans with the hashtag #NeymarHomophobe as the French league’s disciplinary panel prepares to meet to discuss the incidents on Wednesday.

Both Neymar and Gonzalez could be banned for anything up to 10 matches if found guilty of making the insults during a fiery match that saw five players sent off.

The footage, from the 37th minute of the game at Parc des Princes, sees Neymar complaining to the Marseille staff that Gonzalez has racially abused him. The Brazilian points at the Marseille centre-back as he speaks.

But at one point, the Spanish network, as reported in France by RMC Sport, claims Neymar turns and calls Gonzalez a ‘p*** maricon’ in Spanish, a homophobic insult.

However, it is difficult to distinguish whether Neymar actually says this as the commentator speaks at that moment and obscures the player’s speech.

After PSG’s 1-0 defeat, Neymar, who was sent off in the closing minutes after VAR found he threw a punch at Gonzalez amid a mass brawl in stoppage time, alleged Gonzalez called him a ‘monkey motherf*****’ which made him swing for him.

Neymar tweeted: ‘VAR catching my ‘aggression’ is easy… now I want to see the image of the racist calling me a monkey motherf*****.’

He then added: ‘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.

‘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’.

The French authorities will determine on Wednesday if Neymar and Gonzalez will be banned

That will be for the French football authorities to work out on Wednesday as they pick through the video footage with the new accusation of homophobia further complicating matters.

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.

JAMES RODRIGUEZ’S former club Banfield have confirmed that Everton paid no transfer fee to Real Madrid for his services.

In one of the coups of the summer, the Toffees managed to lure the Colombian playmaker to Goodison Park on an initial two-year deal.

It was initially believed that Everton had forked out £22million to bring the 29-year-old to the Premier League.

But SunSport reported last week how the Merseyside outfit landed him on a free – despite Rodriguez having a year left on his contract at the Bernabeu.

And now his former club Banfield have revealed that Everton signed him for nothing, as they claimed they received no money from the deal.

Having sold the player to Porto in 2010, they ensured they would be due a small fee of the transfer for whenever Rodriguez joined other teams.

But in a statement from the Argentine side obtained by Marca, Banfield have insisted they have received no money from his latest move.

Club treasurer Ignacio Urquiza said: “After hearing the news of the transfer of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid to Everton, and attentive to the current FIFA regulations, the Club Atletico Banfield made the pertinent consultations to find out if it was their responsibility to collect money through a solidarity mechanism.

“Unfortunately for the pass of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid to Everton, Banfield does not correspond to money. 

‘The transaction was made without cost, as if it were a free player.

“The pertinent consultations have already been made to the two clubs involved and to the corresponding organisations. 

“In all cases they confirmed to us that the club will not receive money as a solidarity mechanism.”

The Reds are thought to be open to offers for Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, while Rhian Brewster has been linked with a move to Sheffield United.

Wolves speedster Adama Traore and Watford’s Ismaila Sarr have both attracted interest from Liverpool.

Yet Spanish news outlet Sport claim that the Premier League champions have launched an official enquiry for Barca ace Dembele.

The report claims that Liverpool hope to land the Frenchman on a season-long loan deal.

The Reds are said to be willing to pay Barcelona a fee to take Dembele for the campaign as well as front the winger’s full salary.

Yet the outlet suggest that the LaLiga giants are uninterested in Liverpool’s offer and won’t sanction a loan for the former Borussia Dortmund star.

The £135.5million signing has struggled with injuries at the Nou Camp and could only muster nine appearances last season.

Yet Blaugrana president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently claimed Dembele would not be sold amid interest from Manchester United.

He told Barca TV: “Messi is untouchable & non-transferable. He knows it, we all know it.

“But there are various non-transferable players like [Marc-Andre] ter Stegen, [Clement] Lenglet, [Nelson] Semedo, De Jong, Griezmann, Dembele… players we are counting on in the future.”

Liverpool are currently set to unveil their second capture of the window following the arrival of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
