PSG superstar Neymar set to get a three game ban by UEFA

The PSG superstar was furious about the official's decision to award Manchester United penalty.
Neymar has landed himself into trouble after his social media outburst against the officials of the PSG's round of 16's second leg game against Manchester United.
Manchester United played one of their best European games in recent years by overcoming a two-goal deficit at the French capital. Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku were the stars of the game, with the former scoring a penalty in the dying minutes of the game.
The penalty turned out to be a huge moment of controversy as the two sides and their fans turned up against each other on social media. The social media outbursts were not just restricted to the fans as some of the players decided to jump on the bandwagon.
One of the biggest names in the row was of Neymar who had to sit out of the game and watch his side lose the two-goal cushion to the English club. The Brazilian superstar agitated with the decision of the referee, took the issue to Instagram, venting out all of his frustration and cursing the referee.
Now according to the Times, the reaction has not gone well with the UEFA so much that the organisation is considering to ban the Brazilian for the next three Champions League games of his team.

“Disgraceful. 4 guys who know nothing about football watch a slow motion replay in front of the TV. It was nothing! What can he do with his hand while his back is turned? Go f**k yourselves!"

Given the fact that the officials have already started digging into the matter, the possibility of Neymar to get out of the situation with a mere fine is as good as sleeky. The French side would be the biggest losers in the feud as they would have their biggest signing miss Champions League games for them for the third season running.
And given the fact how tricky it has been for the Ligue 1 champions in the premier competition of Europe, one would question their chances of getting through the group stages next season.
