Neymar defended by Marseille's Sakai over racism claim

 A fiery clash last month saw players from both sides accused of racist remarks but no sanctions have been taken in the aftermath

Marseille's Japanese star Hiroki Sakai has rejected claims Neymar made a racist remark towards him last month. 

Paris Saint-Germain lost a fiery clash against Marseille 1-0 in September with five players sent off in a dramatic conclusion that saw Neymar leave the field and accuse Alvaro Gonzalez of racism. 

Neymar was himself then alleged to have made a racist remark towards Sakai but the LFP have ultimately decided against sanctioning either him or Gonzalez due to a lack of evidence.
