Gonzalez continues the Neymar feud by calling him ‘trash’

Thu 14 January 2021 | 8:39

The pair faced each other for the first time since their controversial September incident in the Trophee des Champions on Wednesday.

Neymar

and

Gonzalez’s

history comes from an incident in a match in September, in which the Brazilian was sent off for slapping

Gonzalez

in the back of the head as he accused the Spaniard of making racist comments toward him.

Following

Marseille’s

1-0 Ligue 1 victory,

Neymar

accused the Spaniard of making racist comments toward him, saying on Twitter after the game: "

My only regret is not hitting that asshole in the face,”

while

Gonzalez

responded to the 28-year-old’s claims saying that Neymar needed

"to learn how to lose and accept it on the field."

However, the French federation announced that neither Neymar nor Gonzalez would face any additional punishment for the incident after further investigation.

The duo faced each other again for the first time since that incident in Paris Saint-Germain’s Wednesday 2-1 victory over Marseille, which became Mauricio Pochettino’s first trophy as PSG manager.

After the game, Neymar continued the feud by aiming a dig at Gonzalez on Twitter, posting a picture directed at the defender.

Gonzalez quickly responded by posting a picture of due during the match, replying:

"My parents always taught me to take out the trash. Go OM always."

Following the match, PSG’s captain, Marquinhos, hailed Pochettino as

"an exceptional coach."

“It’s a pleasure to be on the pitch, to be able to give your all so that you can win matches and trophies. That’s why I came to PSG,” the Brazilian told Canal+. “There is a new coach with a new philosophy; it’s not always easy to change during the season but Pochettino is an exceptional coach. He talks a lot with the players and explains well what he wants.

“We thank [Thomas] Tuchel for what he did here, for me because I progressed well under him and he showed me a new level of football that I never expected to reach.”
