Neymar is set to be investigated by UEFA following social media comments he made in the aftermath of Paris Saint-Germain's controversial defeat to Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League.

After Presnel Kimpembe was adjudged to have handled the ball inside his area by VAR in injury-time, Marcus Rashford scored from the spot to send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side through to the quarter-finals in dramatic fashion.

In the wake of his side's 3-1 defeat, Neymar took to Instagram to voice his displeasure, saying: "This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.


"There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back?! Go f**k yourselves!”


Following the comments, UEFA have now announced that they have opened proceedings on the Brazilian international, with an outcome expected to be reached soon. 

A statement read (as quoted by the Daily Mirror): "UEFA has today announced that it has appointed an Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector to conduct an investigation regarding the comments made on social media by the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior, following the UEFA Champions League match between PSG & Man Utd."


The former Barcelona star remains out with a injury picked up earlier this year, which forced him to sit out both legs of his side's Champions League tie against Manchester United.
