Neymar accused of using homophobic slur towards Alvaro Gonzalez during heated exchange

Neymar was involved in an exchange with a Marseille player

Neymar has been accused of using a homophobic slur during a heated verbal exchange with Alvaro Gonzalez. 

The Brazilian has been at the centre of another storm in Ligue 1 this week after being sent off for his involvement in a mass brawl at the end of PSG vs Marseille. 

Five players were shown red in the final minute of the match and Neymar was given his marching orders for throwing a punch at his opponent. 

The PSG star alleges that Gonzalez called him a 'monkey motherf*****', which led to him taking a swing. 

After the game, Neymar tweeted: "VAR catching my 'aggression' is easy... now I want to see the image of the racist calling me a monkey motherf*****.

"My only regret is not hitting that a****** in the face."

Ligue 1's disciplinary panel will meet on Wednesday to discuss the incident, but now a new accusation has come to light that will further complicate matters. 

Spanish TV have shared footage from an exchange between Neymar and Gonzalez in the 37th-minute of the match, claiming the PSG player used a homophobic slur. 

Per the Daily Mail, the Brazilian can be seen complaining to the Marseille staff that Gonzalez has racially abused him and points at the centre-back as he speaks.

The subtitles then suggest Neymar turns around and calls Gonzalez a 'p*** maricon' in Spanish, a homophobic insult which translates to 'f***ing queer'. You can see the clip below: 

It must be noted that it's very difficult to distinguish whether Neymar actually says this as the commentator speaks at that moment to obscure his speech. 

The incident has been shared across social media this week and will surely be discussed during Ligue 1's meeting on Wednesday.
