Neymar banned for three Champions League matches over ref insult

AFP  |  Lausanne 

Neymar was suspended for three Champions League matches by UEFA on Friday for insulting match officials following Paris Saint-Germain's shock Champions League loss to Manchester United.

The Brazil star missed the 3-1 second leg last 16 defeat on March 6 through injury, but told match officials "to go fuck yourselves" on social media after watching on from the sidelines at the Parc des Princes.

Neymar was found guilty of "insulting/molesting acts against match official", European football's governing body announced in a statement.
