Neymar and Donnarumma in dressing room fight after defeat to Real Madrid
PSG’s forward Neymar and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma had to be separated after exchanging words in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room following their team’s 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday.
The incident reportedly occurred when Neymar reproached the PSG goalkeeper for his error in Karim Benzema’s equaliser, when Vinicius took advantage of a misplaced Donnarumma pass to pull Real Madrid level at 1-1.
Donnarumma reminded Neymar that Real Madrid’s second goal came after a mistake from the Brazil international and everything escalated, with the two players almost coming to blows before the pair was pulled apart.
Unfortunately, that was not the only incident that occurred after the game, as the PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting direct Leonardo stormed towards the referees’ room, accusing the officials of not giving a foul on Donnarumma in Benzema’s challenge in the build-up for Real Madrid’s’ equaliser.
Al-Khelaifi reportedly threatened the referees, shouting “I’ll kill you”, before police and security intervened to bring the incident to an end.
