Neymar banned for two games following PSG-Marseille brawl

Neymar has been banned for two games for his part in the brawl at the end of the Ligue 1 game between Paris Saint- Germain and Marseille.

The Brazilian was one of the five players to be sent off in a last-minute brawl at the Parc des Princes after striking Alvaro Gonzalez in the back of the head, having had several incidents with the Spanish defender previously in the game.

After the match, Neymar took to twitter to say that he regretted not hitting Gonzalez in the face while the Marseille defender said that he did not make any racial slurs and Neymar needs to learn how to lose.

Neymar released a lengthy statement saying that he regretted how the entire situation unfolded, but he also asked people in power to address the issue of racism in sports.
