Neymar faces Uefa investigation for Champions League VAR penalty comments

The Premier League outfit were given the spot-kick after Presnel Kimpembe was judged to have handled Diogo Dalot's shot, a decision that on Friday UEFA maintained was correct due to the distance the ball travelled before hitting Kimpembe's arm and the PSG defender's body position.

The Brazilian, sidelined by injury, was infuriated by a late penalty awarded to United in PSG's last-16 second-leg defeat in Paris which saw them go out on away goals and Neymar later called the VAR system a "disgrace". "There is no penalty".

After Paris Saint-Germain were eliminated by Manchester United in the Champions League, Neymar took to social media to criticise the use of VAR and that has prompted UEFA to open an investigation over his comments.
