Neymar in racism row at Emirates

CHELSEA target Neymar complained of racist abuse after starring in Brazil’s 2-0 win over Scotland at Emirates Stadium yesterday.

The teenage Santos forward scored both goals, one a penalty, and then alleged a banana had been thrown onto the pitch during the friendly.

“This atmosphere of racism is totally sad,” Neymar said. “They were jeering me a lot – even when I was about to kick the penalty the entire stadium was jeering.”

Brazil coach Mano Menezes said he had not seen the banana incident, while Scotland manager Craig Levein said he was not aware of it either.
