Man Utd: Paris St-Germain Star, Neymar Criticises Penalty Decision


The decision to award Manchester United a penalty in the 94th minute of their win over Paris St-Germain in the Champions League was a "disgrace", says the French club's forward Neymar.

The 27-year-old raged about the call, made after using VAR, on social media as United reached the quarter-finals.

Marcus Rashford's goal earned a 3-1 win and United went through on away goals after the tie ended 3-3 on aggregate.

But Brazilian striker Neymar said the penalty "doesn't exist".

He added: "It's a disgrace. Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television.

"What can [Kimpembe] do with his hand while his back is turned?" asked the former Barcelona player, who missed both legs through injury.

The penalty was awarded after referee Damir Skomina had initially awarded a corner after Diogo Dalot's shot struck Presnel Kimpembe and went over the crossbar.

Skomina received a signal to check the incident again for a possible handball in the box and after watching a pitchside monitor, changed his decision.
