Brazilian Footballer Neymar has recently appealed against UEFA’s three-match ban imposed on him for using inappropriate words towards match referee, as reported bt French sports newspaper L’Equipe.
Neymar was handed a three-match suspension by the UEFA last month for insulting the match referee following an earlier Champions League match, the Xinhua news agency reported.
Feeling furious about the match referee’s decision to award the visitors a penalty late in the match following a VAR review, he turned to abusive words towards video assistant referees on social media.
Neymar can defend himself personally against the UEFA’s decision in the European football governing body’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. A date is yet to be set for the hearing.
