Neymar is out due to injury, but he went in on the referees following Paris Saint-Germain’s loss to Manchester United.

The Red Devils knocked out PSG after a controversial handball, which was made through the Video Assistant Referee replay system, awarded them a penalty kick in the dying stages of Wednesday’s match.

Afterward, Neymar vented his frustration on his Instagram story:

Translated from his native Portuguese, according to Champions League rights holder Bleacher Report, it’s a pretty scathing indictment of not just the decision but the entire refereeing crew:

The call was very close, and it could have gone either way.

It didn’t go PSG’s way, and that decision has stung Neymar and will surely sting the club for a long time.
