Gonzalez strongly denied the claims with reports in Spain now claiming Neymar launched a homophobic slur at him BEFORE their late scrap, during a first-half exchange.
The above tweet, posted by a Marseille fan, claims to have dissected the exact words used during the exchange by reading the subtitles used by a Spanish TV network's coverage of the game.
The supporter's translated post read: "So by dissecting the images which for the moment innocent Alvaro Gonzalez we realize that Neymar would have said 'P*** maricon'.
"Remarks of a homophobic nature."
French outlet RMC Sport also claim Neymar called Gonzalez a "p*** maricon" which translates to "f***ing queer", according to the Daily Mail.
However, it is almost impossible to know for sure what Neymar says, as the commentator pipes up at the exact moment the Brazilian is said to have uttered the homophobic remark.2Neymar and Gonzalez came to blows late in the game between PSG and Marseille with accusations of racism and now homophobiaCredit: The Mega Agency

PSG winger Neymar was one man shown red for punching Gonzalez in the back of the head - and could now be hit with a seven-match ban.
The Brazilian later suggested Gonzalez called him a "monkey son of a b****".Most read in FootballPicturedTOP OF THE FLOPSChelsea flop Kepa sends fans wild as he shows off huge bulge in pantsLive BlogGUNNERS NEWSArsenal transfer news LIVE - Latest updates from the EmiratesLAND OF THE GIANTSChelsea's Werner admits he has never seen anyone like Brighton defendersRevealedGAZ STATIONHow Bale compared with Sancho and Greenwood last season as Spurs close inGossipSAM PLANMan Utd could land Khedira for FREE as Juventus 'set to terminate his contract'TOP GUNNERLionel Messi gives blind Arsenal fan £4k glasses in incredible charity gesture

Welsh side Connah’s Quay let ill players line up in Europa League clash despite Covid-19 outbreak at club, admits boss
WELSH side Connah's Quay Nomads let unwell players line up in their Europa League qualifier despite a Covid-19 outbreak at club.
But the match went ahead despite four Nomads players testing positive for Covid-19 beforehand, according to BBC Sport.
The quartet and a fifth player, who has yet to test positive, were forced to self-isolate.
But manager Andy Morrison admitted they turned a 'blind eye' to others who turned up not well.
He said: "Three lads have turned up tonight and they're not well.
"And it's like 'lads I don't want to hear it. I can't hear it tonight that you're ill, please like you know. Let's just get through it'.
"I've been told that before the game and we've had to turn a blind eye to it and then you would have never noticed that anyone there tonight wasn't feeling great."
