PARIS – Uefa have opened disciplinary proceedings on Neymar after his foul-mouthed outburst about referees following Paris Saint-Germain’s controversial Champions League exit to Manchester United last week, the governing body announced on Wednesday.
Injured Brazil forward Neymar launched into a diatribe against the match officials shortly after the defeat on Instagram.
He watched on incredulous from the sidelines at the Parc des Princes as United were awarded a stoppage-time penalty for a debateable handball via the video assistant referee (VAR) system.
Marcus Rashford crashed home the spot-kick to give the Premier League side a last-gasp 3-1 win that saw them into the quarter-finals on away goals.
“It’s a disgrace. They get four guys who don’t understand football to watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV ... Go f**k yourselves!” Neymar wrote in Portuguese on the social media website.
