The world of football was shocked earlier this week when it was announced that Neymar would receive a four match ban following being sent off after Brazil’s defeat to Colombia.
The Barcelona forward was shown red after a fiery contest which seen Colombia run out 1-0 victors over their South American rivals in the Copa America.
However, the Barcelona forward’s one match ban was extended to four a day later after the referee’s report was submitted.
And now, a full explanation has come out citing why Neymar has received such a ban with reports emerging that he called the referee a “son of a bitch”.
Enrique Osses, the Chilean who refereed the game states that Neymar waited around the tunnel for him before blurting out a foul mouthed rant.
Neymar supposedly said: “”You want to make yourself famous at my expense, you son of a b**ch. You want to be famous.”
If true then the Barcelona forward definitely got off lightly!
