French Football Federation president Nöel Le Graët spoke with BFM Business and addressed Neymar's accusation that he was the target of a racial slur from Alvaro Gozalez during PSG's Sunday defeat to Marseille:
“When a black guy scores a goal, the whole stadium is on its feet. This phenomenon of racism in sport, and in football in particular, does not exist at all or barely exists.”
"It is a match that the entirety of France has anticipation for. It went badly. The behaviour of the players was not exemplary. We deplore that. It is a shame. They were not able to keep their cool, nor give the show that we were expecting."
