Florian Thauvin gave Marseille their first league win over PSG since November 2011, condemning last season's Champions League runners-up to their second straight league defeat after they suffered a 1-0 opening day setback at Lens.

"I do tricks and I get punished. A tap on the head and I get sent off. What about them?"

Gonzalez strenuously denied the accusation on Twitter, insisting there is "no place for racism" and he has had a "clean career".

In a reply to Gonzalez's tweet, Neymar wrote: "You're not man enough to own up to your mistake, losing is part of the sport. Insulting and bringing racism into our lives isn't.

"I can't agree with that. I DON'T RESPECT YOU! YOU HAVE NO CHARACTER! Own up to what you say my brother ... be a MAN! RACIST."
