Innocent Neymar: I Didn’t Do Anything To The Referee

share on:

Neymar has revealed that he didn’t verbally assault the referee, an action that led to a four match ban.

Neymar left Chile on Monday, after Brazil withdrew their appeal. This means that for the remainder of the Copa, Neymar will be absent.

“It was a family decision to leave,” the Barcelona forward told Jornal Nacional. “I talked to my father, and then I told Dunga and team manager Gilmar Rinaldi. They agreed.

“Nothing happened in the tunnel, basically. I was inside it, and waiting to ask the ref why he dismissed me. Then a huddle took place and security guards came in, thinking I was nervous, that I wanted to attack him.

“That’s how it came to this.”
