  • UEFA orders investigation into PSG star Neymar for rant after Man United defeat

Marcus Rashford's VAR-assisted penalty sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side through to the quarter-finals after a 3-1 win at the Parc des Prices - a match Neymar was injured for.

The penalty was awarded by VAR after Diogo Dalot's shot struck Presnel Kimpembe on the arm, but Neymar was adamant the spot-kick should not have been given.

Neymar was so reportedly enraged by the decision to give the penalty that he had to be restrained by PSG staff to stop him entering their dressing room.

"That is a disgrace", he wrote on his Instagram Stories alongside a screenshot of the alleged handball.


Neymar is set to be investigated by UEFA following his comments in the aftermath of Paris Saint-Germain's elimination from the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian star Neymar has landed himself in hot water with UEFA following foul-mouthed comments posted on his Instagram account following PSG's Champions League exit against Manchester United.

He furiously turned to abusive words towards video assistant referees on social media. How can it be a handball when it hits his back! Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television.

Neymar, who is now sidelined with a foot injury, had watched the game from the stands.
