The president of the Disciplinary Commission justified the sanction imposed on Neymar after his red card against Lille.
The verdict fell on Wednesday for Neymar Jr. Before facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and to be decisive, the Brazilian learned that he had been scooped a suspension of two matches in Ligue 1, plus a suspended match, after his red card received against Lille.
How did the Disciplinary Commission decide? Its president Sébastien Deneux explained it in the columns of L’Equipe: “ Initially, it is only two yellow cards, he explained, but what played in the sanction was the behavior that followed. It is Neymar who comes to provoke his opponent, these are dependent elements and it weighed down the very principle of the automatic suspension match. “
Neymar is therefore warned. In addition to the trip to Strasbourg on Saturday, he will miss the reception of Strasbourg on April 18. And he will now be under the threat of his suspended match, if he collects a yellow card during the next 10 meetings in national competitions (Ligue 1, Coupe de France).
