The Brazilian was watching the second-leg of the dramatic round-of-16 tie from the sidelines, where United defeated PSG 3-1 at the Parc des Princes, having been ruled out through injury.
But in a social media post after the game, Neymar explicitly criticised the controversial last-gasp penalty awarded to United for handball against Presnel Kimpembe.
“This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR,” Neymar said.
“There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back! Go f**k yourselves!”
Uefa’s disciplinary committee released a statement on Friday afternoon reading: ”The CEDB has decided to suspend the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior for three (3) UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting match officials.”
The decision means the £200m forward will miss half of the group stage for next season’s competition.
