A source very close to OM, confirmed that the club had videos, which would incriminate Neymar, for racist remarks made towards the Japanese Hiroki Sakai.
The PSG-OM match, already sad on the pitch, continues on a foul pitch.
A source close to Olympique de Marseille, who wished to remain anonymous, told AFP that the club had images on which Neymar, who said he was the victim of racist insults, would himself utter, insulting remarks against the Japanese Hiroki Sakai, during the controversial match between Paris SG and OM in mid-September.
While the Brazilian said he had been the target, of racist remarks by the Spanish Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez, there has been an increase in media fires, and counter-fires in the Brazilian and Spanish media, in recent hours, a continuation of this stormy “clasico” polluted by five expulsions.
Two video passages for Neymar
OM has images on which Neymar would insult Sakai, a source close to the Marseille club said, confirming information from Spanish radio Cadena Cope. These racist remarks, according to the same source, were made twice by the Brazilian superstar of the PSG.
On Monday, the Brazilian TV channel TV Globo reported that PSG had submitted to the French Professional Football League (LFP) a video showing, according to experts in lip reading, that Neymar would have been, a victim of racist remarks, during the PSG-OM clash on 13 September at the Parc des Princes.
“Allegations undoubtedly remotely guided by Marseille”
This media battle comes at a time when the LFP Disciplinary Commission has opened an investigation into the accusations of racism that Neymar said he was a victim of.
The investigation is also expected, to examine the Brazilian’s alleged homophobic insult to Alvaro, according to images analysed by Spanish media.
A spokesperson for OM reacted by saying that “we are not commenting” on this case. “We will entrust all our expertise and analysis to the instructor” of the LFP, he added.
For its part, Paris SG has sent a video to the LFP, with images that “shed light on the behaviour of the players”, confirmed to AFP, a source close to the Parisian club, who wished to remain anonymous, while rejecting the new accusations against Neymar.
“These are just allegations made by a Spanish journalist [from Cadena Cope] probably teleguided by Marseille. For us, no doubt, it has no value,” the source reacted. Usually in these cases, when you have a video, you broadcast it on social networks, it’s much more efficient. »
