My Red Card Was Exaggerated, Unfair – Neymar Blasts Official

Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar felt his red card against Marseille was harsh and unfair, saying he had numerous marks on his body to show from the Le Classique.


The Brazil International was sent off in the 87th minute of Sunday’s 2-2 draw after clashing with Lucas Ocampos and picking up a second yellow card.

The 25-year-old, who earlier delayed taking a corner as objects thrown from the stands rained down around him, was unhappy with his sending off, criticising referee Ruddy Buquet.

“I think it was exaggerated and unfair. I spent the whole game getting enough. I have many marks on my body,” Neymar told Esporte Interativo.

“It was a move I tried to continue after suffering a foul. I was annoyed at the blow from behind.
“The referee did what he wanted, which was to send me off and appear more than the players,” Neymar said.

PSG are on top of Ligue 1 with four points clear after the draw, with Neymar set to miss Friday’s clash against Nice.
