One of the side stories in Olympique de Marseille’s 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain is the allegation of racism from Neymar Jr. towards Álvaro González.
After the match, Marseille manager André Villas-Boas was asked about the incident when he took the microphone with Téléfoot. The French Media outlet first asked the Portuguese manager over the match and what led to their 1-0 win on the road at the Parc des Prince.
Then the transitioned to the Neymar-González incident, which Villas-Boas doesn’t think happened.
“I don’t know. I hope not. There is no place for racism in football. It’s a serious fault if it happened, but I don’t think so. Before that, we had a situation with a spit from Di María. These are things to avoid in the world of football. I hope that won’t be a black spot in this historic performance.”
