Shameful scenes as five players sent off in stoppage time during PSG vs Marseille

They are also investigating the claims made about Gonzalez, and if he is found guilty of racism he could face up to a ten-game ban.

Neymar alleged that Gonzalez called him a 'monkey motherf*****', which infuriated the £208m star and resulted in him throwing a punch at his rival.

When Neymar is sent off, he shouts down the camera on the touchline saying: "I hit [Alvaro] because he is a racist".

Paris Saint Germain suffered their second defeat of the new season after going down 1-0 at home to Marseille on Sunday night.

"The only regret I have is not hitting this idiot in the face", the world's most expensive player said.

Tempers flared between the players from both sides on the pitch during the stoppage time after a clash between Marseille's Dario Benedetto and PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes following a challenge.

In a later tweet, Neymar said "It is easy for the VAR to see my "aggression" and added he was subjected to offensive insults of a racist nature. Allez l'OM. Thanks family, ' Gonzalez tweeted alongside a picture of himself with his team-mates.

Alvaro Gonzalez has also hit back at Neymar telling the Brazilian to learn how to accept defeat on the pitch and also claimed that he did not use any utter any bitter language against his opponent.

However, PSG sporting director Leonardo suggested referee Jerome Brisard lacked the experience to officiate such a highly-charged fixture.

It was one of the fiercest matches in recent history that saw 10 yellow cards and five red cards being dished out. "Not to criticise the referee but perhaps it's not the time to officiate a "clasico". "I don't agree with that, it was too much", he said. If we continue to play like that, we will win all the games.

Thauvin, who shone in Marseille's opening 3-2 win at Brest before the worldwide break, made the breakthrough when he turned in a Dimitri Payet free-kick from point-blank range.

Angel Di Maria's effort for PSG was ruled out in the 62nd minute. "We didn't want to get into that sort of game".
