Copa America: Jesus banned, Neymar angry

Brazil striker, Neymar, has lambasted the South American football body, CONMEBOL, after it confirmed his team-mate Gabriel Jesus, will be suspended for the Copa America final.

This is due to a red card Jesus received during their 1-0 quarter-final win over Chile.

CONMEBOL announced on Tuesday it suspended Jesus for two matches.

The Manchester City striker did not play in Brazil’s 1-0 semi-final victory against Peru on Monday, with Everton taking his place in the team.

“It is very sad to be on the hands of people who make this kind of decisions,” Neymar said of the incident on Instagram.

CONMEBOL also fined Jesus $5,000 and Brazil cannot appeal the decision.
