He watched on incredulous from the sidelines at the Parc des Princes as United were awarded a stoppage-time penalty for a debateable handball via the video assistant referee (VAR) system.

He said the penalty, which was scored by Marcus Rashford, "doesn't exist".

"It's a disgrace", Neymar had said in his Instagram post in Portuguese.

UEFA says it has ordered an investigation into comments by Neymar about match officials after Paris Saint-Germain lost to Manchester United in the Champions League.

Neymar was reportedly restrained by club staff as he confronted referee Damir Skomina after the game in a furious tunnel bust-up.

Neymar is set to be investigated by UEFA following his comments in the aftermath of Paris Saint-Germain's elimination from the Champions League.

It is understood that UEFA are furious by Neymar's behaviour and have now announced that the 27-year-old is under investigation for his outburst. Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television.

Buffon accused the English referee of having a "dustbin in place of a heart" for awarding Real a last-gasp penalty that knocked Juve out after the Italians had clawed back a 3-0 first-leg deficit to level the tie.

Neymar, who did not play in the fixture due to his current foot injury, voiced his opinion on social media after the match.
