Marseille manager’s thoughts

When asked about the whole situation, the Marseille boss had this to say:

“I don’t think so, because Alvaro is an experienced player. There is no room for racism in football, but I don’t think that’s it.”

“Neymar was a little annoyed by this situation at the end of the match. I hope that will not distract from this victory.”

“We also have Di Maria who spat on one of our players. It was a Clasico and we must remember this historic victory for OM.”

Alvaro Gonzalez took to social media to defend himself after Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar accused him of making racist remarks.

The Spanish defender tweeted:

“There is no place for racism. A clean career and with many team-mates and friends on a day to day basis. Sometimes you have to learn how to lose and accept it on the field. Incredible three points today, Allezl’OM thank you, family,”
