Neymar Apologizes For Altercation With Fan Following PSG Loss

Neymar labelled the VAR system a

Paris Saint-Germain FC lost the French Cup final to Stade Rennais Football Club (Rennes) 5-6 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in regular time on Saturday.

Bernardo said Edouard called the PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon "dirty", the midfielder Marco Verratti "racist", and said Neymar needed to "go and learn to play football" even though the forward scored one goal and created another in the match itself.

However, Neymar apologized on Instagram as he said, "Did I act badly? Yes".

"It's hard to say that we're not fragile mentally. we're always missing that little something extra", Tuchel said after the Rennes defeat.

PSG made the ideal start when Dani Alves' volley from 20 metres put them ahead in the 13th minute and Neymar doubled the lead with a fine lob.

Rennes had been knocked out of this competition following heavy defeats by PSG in each of the last two seasons, and another hiding looked on the cards as they went 2-0 down early on. The most recent display and loss means their hopes of a double are gone after picking up the Ligue 1 title with a win over Monaco last week.

"We need to be more like men in the dressing room, we must be more united", Neymar told reporters in the mixed zone, according to The42. Sometimes an experienced player says something and they do not care, or the manager says something and they do not care. The coach himself speaks, and they retort.

We need to be more intelligent, they (the young players) more than us because we (the older players) are more experienced. "This is not how a team goes far", he added.

Neymar, returning to the starting line-up for the first time in three months from injury, was released by Angel Di Maria before chipping past goalkeepr Tomas Koubek in the 21st minute. "One day or another, he will come back stronger".

We made a ideal start and we should have gone on with it, but we let them back into the game. Neymar's strike partner Kylian Mbappe was sent off for stamping on Damien da Silva's knee with two minutes left in extra time.
