French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have been fined by the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) Disciplinary Committee after fans unfurled an offensive banner against star player Neymar.
PSG were fined to the tune of €2,000 for the offensive banner against Neymar who angered the club’s fans following his desire to leave the French champions this summer.
The banner incident happened during the opening league game of the new season, 3-0 win over Nimes at home.
During that home game against Nimes, chants of ‘Son of a b*tch’ were also heard during the game.
Neymar has not played for PSG this season as he’s presently recovering from the ankle injury that he sustained at the start of last month.
He is fed up with life at Parc des Princes after two years at the club.
His preference is to return to Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona but arch rivals Real Madrid are also interested in a move for him.
Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are finding it hard to raise the necessary funds required to sign him.
PSG are keen to recoup the €220m spent on his transfer from Barcelona in the summer of 2017.
The transfer from Barcelona to PSG made him the most expensive player in world football.
