Neymar could reportedly face sanction over his confrontation with referee Jerome Brisard in the tunnel during PSG’s game with Montpellier on Saturday.

Neymar had already clashed with the match official during the first half, after Brisard handed him a yellow card for unsportsmanlike behaviour because of his showboating. And the PSG star was clearly still angry about the situation at half-time.

During Neymar’s rant in the tunnel over the official’s decision to book him, Brisard demanded that the player speak French as the he approached him, to which he replied: “Speak French? My ass!”

As reported by L’Equipe, Ligue de Football Professionnel’s (LFP) Disciplinary Committee will meet this Thursday to analyse the tunnel incident and determine whether to take action against Neymar, who could face tough sanctions.
