PSG were knocked out the competition thanks to Marcus Rashford’s stoppage-time penalty and Neymar was outraged with the referee’s decision to award the spot kick
Neymar could be punished for two separate tirades against the match officials who gave a controversial penalty to Manchester United in their 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.
The result knocked the French giants out on away goals with Marcus Rashford netting the decisive strike from the spot in stoppage-time.

Referee Damir Skomina gave United the spot kick after Diogo Dalot’s long-range effort struck Presenel Kimpembe’s arm as he turned his back.

And PSG forward Neymar, who missed both legs with a metatarsal injury, was outraged with the decision and he sarcastically applauded one of the four officials as they walked down the tunnel.
He also shouted at the official in an aggressive manner before being dragged away by a club employee.
Neymar then took to Instagram to rant against the officials, writing: “This is a disgrace. They put 4 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*** yourselves!”

UEFA could issue Neymar with a fine if Skomina mentions either of the incidents in his report even though the Brazilian was not in the matchday squad.
Gianluigi Buffon was banned for three matches following his extraordinary rant following Juventus’ exit from the competition in last season’s quarter-finals.
