Brazilian FC Barcelona forward Neymar might miss the El Clásico against Real Madrid as he mocked the fourth official following his red card verdict in a 0-2 loss to Malaga in the La Liga on Saturday.
Referee Jesús Gil Manzano, who booked Neymar for the second time in the match for a rash tackle on Diego Llorente to leave Barcelona down to 10 men for the final 25 minutes, included Neymar’s barb while walking off into the tunnel in his post-match report, according to the Guardian.
This could result in up to three matches being added to Neymar’s suspension.
The Catalans had Luis Suárez out with a two-game ban in the February after the same referee wrote in his report after a Copa del Rey game against Atletico Madrid that the Uruguayan delayed his exit down the tunnel after being sent off.
Real Madrid play Barcelona on April 23.
