The controversy that followed the previous Clasico between PSG and Olympique de Marseille at Parc des Princes last September had deeply affected the Spanish defender.
It’s shocking day for the PSG and theOlympic Marseille. Four months after OM’s historic victory in Paris, the two enemies of French football have indeed met on the lawn of the Bollaert Stadium to compete for the Champions Trophy. The occasion, obviously, of reunion between Neymar and Álvaro González after the huge controversy that marked the Clasico last September.
Several altercations had pitted the two men throughout the meeting, which ended in the general confusion between insults and blows, resulting in no less than five exclusions, including that of Neymar. Particularly recovered, the Brazilian had complained vehemently to the referee then in the mixed zone and finally on social networks of racist insults from the Spanish defender. The former Barcelona player criticized his opponent in particular for having described him as a monkey.
He was ready to leave OM
Very heavy accusations which the former Villarreal player had vehemently defended. Taken to task in the streets of Marseille by an Olympian fan who had called him a monkey, the native of Potes did not hesitate to appear in front of the leaders of groups of supporters and his leaders, swearing to them not to have pronounced racist insults.
Very moved, to the point of bursting into tears, the player then put his future at stake at OM. “If you don’t believe me, if I’m a problem, then I agree to go and leave OM without any compensation”, he had launched to its president Jacques-Henri Eyraud. A sequence which marked the spirits of Marseille and which will undoubtedly be without many heads when it comes to finding the Parisians.
