Neymar charged by UEFA over rant


Neymar has been charged by UEFA with insulting match officials in the wake of Paris Saint-Germain's loss to Manchester United in the Champions League last-16.

United stunned the French side as they overturned a 2-0 deficit from the first leg to win on the away goals after Marcus Rashford scored from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Diogo Dalot's shot struck Presnel Kimpembe on the arm and referee Damir Skomina awarded the penalty after consulting VAR, sparking an angry reaction from Neymar, who was watching from the stands.

Taking to Instagram, Neymar wrote:  "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 **** yourselves!"

Following an investigation into his rant, UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Neymar for "insulting/molesting acts match officials".

UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case.
