He had been fouled several times during the game until the 87th minute, he does get fouled a lot in every since Ligue 1 match, and three minutes from time against Olympique Marseille, he answered back…
Neymar pushed Lucas Ocampos after yet another foul he had suffered, Marseille’s player fell on the ground acting like he had been… hit by a car, and the referee didn’t think about it too much before showing the Brazilian a second yellow card.
We are a little disappointed about the sending off because he was fouled a lot throughout the match. I think the referee also needs to think well. We must protect the players. The yellow card, I think it’s not fair to Neymar. He’s a player who wants to play, but if every game he is provoked… at some point there will be aggression
Unai Emery told reporters after the match, which PSG drew 2-2, despite being 2-1 down when Neymar was sent off. Edinson Cavani took a free-kick absolutely perfectly in added time to send the ball in and salvage at least a point for the Paris giants.
The result is right. The difficulty for us was that the grass was longer and the match had less rhythm. We wanted more rhythm, more play, but it was difficult. They had an opportunity and they scored in the first-half. After 2-1 and the sending off it was difficult for us but the character of the team helped us draw
the PSG coach said, complaining about the length of the grass, which, according to him, made it difficult to play the game they wanted/had planned.
