The Brazilian striker had accused Alvaro Gonzalez of making racism during the same game

Fox Sports reports that PSG forward Neymar Jr was caught on camera using a racist slur against Japanese right back Hiroki Sakai.

The incident occurred during a Ligue 1 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille.

In the video footage, the two footballers are seen in a confrontation before Neymar approaches the defender and seemingly calls him a “Chinese shit.”

Neymar also landed in hot water during the same match when he allegedly hurled homophobic abuse towards Marseille centre back Álvaro González.

The former Barcelona FC star accused the Spanish footballer of making racist remarks, allegedly calling him “momo” – “monkey” in Spanish.

Whilst Brazilian lip-reading experts agreed Gonzalez had made the racist slurs, Spanish lip-reading experts disagreed.

Consequently, neither Neymar nor Gonzalez were disciplined.

In other news, South Korean forward Son Heung-min recently became the first Asian footballer to score four goals in the Premier League.
