Injured Neymar could only watch on from the stands and later the touchline as his teammates threw away a two-goal, first-leg lead following two Romelu Lukaku goals and a Marcus Rashford spot kick, awarded for a Presnel Kimpembe handball after a VAR review.
“This is a disgrace,” the 27-year-old raged on Instagram at the time. “Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television.
“It was nothing! What can [Kimpembe] do with his hand while his back is turned? Go f— yourselves!”
Neymar watched last Wednesday’s match from the stands, having returned from Brazil where he had been recovering from a second fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot.
