The LFP Disciplinary Committee in France has revealed punishment for Neymar as well as four other players involved in the mass brawl that overshadowed Paris Saint-Germain’s clash with Marseille a few days ago.

Neymar accused Gonzalez of racially abusing him during the clash. He claimed Alvaro called him a ‘monkey son of a b****’, but Gonzalez has since denied the claims. 

The LFP will investigate those allegations against the Spanish defender, and also look into claims filed by Marseille that PSG star Angel Di Maria spat at Gonzalez.
