Neymar: Paris St-Germain forward’s three-game European ban upheld

Neymar’s three-match European ban has been upheld after Uefa rejected an appeal by his club Paris St-Germain.

The PSG forward, 27, was charged with insulting match officials after their Champions League exit at home to Manchester United on 6 March.

Neymar described as “a disgrace” the award of a decisive 94th-minute United penalty in their last-16 second leg match.

He also wrote in an Instagram post that the penalty “doesn’t exist”.

Neymar was injured and missed both legs of the European knockout tie – which United won as a result of the penalty converted by Marcus Rashford.

The spot-kick ensured a 3-1 win in Paris for United, who went through to the Champions League quarter-finals on away goals after the tie ended 3-3 on aggregate.
