It can be recalled that Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar was hit with a three-match ban for an altercation with a Rennes fan who met him after PSG’s surprise defeat in the French Cup final.
Neymar will not be prosecuted as the Frech authorities have ruled that the player will only receive a written warning for his conduct with no other measures required.
The 29-year-old Rennes fan tried to film Neymar after the game at the Stade de France which PSG lost in a penalty shootout. According to the man, Neymar lowered the phone and slapped him on the chin.
However, Neymar took to Instagram after the incident and revealed regrets for his action. “I shouldn’t have done it but sometimes it’s hard to remain calm”.
Meanwhile, Neymar has since returned to club action even after the transfer disagreements when he attempted to return to his former club Barcelona in the summer.
