Spanish Radio station Cadena SER claims to have acquired footage of Neymar racially abusing Japanese rightback Hiroki Sakai, as the ugly fallout from a Ligue 1 clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille rolls on.
Earlier this month, Marseille claimed to have footage of the incident after the Brazilian levelled allegations of racist abuse against Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez.
A source close to the club told AFP Marseille had evidence of the Brazil forward making the comments on two occasions, and Cadena SER has released footage of Neymar and Sakai clashing. The video is subtitlted with “Chino de mierda” (Chinese s**t) and “puta liga” (whore’s league).

Neymar was among five players sent off in the fiery match a fortnight ago, which also saw teammate Angel di Maria hit with a four-match ban for spitting on Gonzalez.
Three Brazilian lip-reading experts interviewed by Globo TV agreed Gonzalez had called Neymar “mono” — “monkey” in Spanish — after watching the footage from French broadcaster Telefoot.
However, other lip-reading experts — notably in Gonzalez’s native Spain — have analysed the same tape and found no evidence the defender used a racial slur.
According to some Spanish media reports, Neymar in fact used a homophobic slur against Gonzalez.
A PSG source told AFP earlier this month that the allegations had “no value”.
