Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is facing a possible two-match Champions League ban for a foul-mouthed outburst on social media after Barcelona took the lead against his side on Tuesday evening.
The Brazilian, who was ruled out of the game PSG eventually won 4-1 through injury, took exception to a penalty awarded to his former side after Frenkie de Jong was judged to have been clipped by defender Layvin Kurzawa,
The 29-year-old wrote on Twitter ‘this penalty is a joke’ and then wrote ‘s*** goal’ in fury as Lionel Messi converted the penalty to put Barca into the lead.
He quickly deleted the first tweet, but not quick enough for it to be picked up by eagle-eyed fans.
It was a reaction that could cost him if UEFA decide to sanction him for it. The UEFA disciplinary code prevents ‘insults or other conduct that violates the basic rules of conduct.’
If punished, he could be banned for up to two games, meaning he would miss the second leg and PSG’s potential quarter-final, should they get through.
