UEFA reject PSG’s appeal: Neymar’s 3-match ban upheld after Man United insults

Neymar reacted badly after Man United beat PSG

In one of the more remarkable matches in the 2018-19 Champions League, Man United stunned PSG in the last-16.

Man United beat PSG 3-1 at the Parc des Princes.

Man United’s third goal in Paris came from the penalty spot. VAR decided that Presnel Kimpembe had handled the ball in the PSG box.

That decision triggered Neymar into a social media rant after the game:

This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.

There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back?! Go f**k yourselves!

Neymar later deleted his Instagram post, but UEFA had already opened an investigation into the matter.

UEFA reject PSG’s appeal

Back in April, UEFA decided that Neymar would be punished with a three-match Champions League ban for his outburst.

To be clear, Neymar’s ban will apply in this year’s competition, too.

PSG tried to overturn the ban by appealing the original decision.

However, it’s been confirmed today that PSG’s appeal proved unsuccessful.

As a result, Neymar’s three-match ban remains intact.

Will Neymar be at Barcelona in 2019-20?

Those rumours are flying about right now.

According to Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo today, Neymar has already indicated to PSG that he wants to join Barcelona.

The front page of MD had the following quote: “I don’t want to play here anymore. I want to return home; I never should have left”.
