UEFA have upheld the ban delivered to Neymar following his reaction to the defeat to Manchester United at Parc des Princes.
The Brazil forward was sanctioned for insulting match officials following Paris Saint-Germain's dramatic Champions League exit at the hands of the Red Devils in March.
A statement from UEFA confirming the news read: “The appeal lodged by Paris Saint-Germain is rejected.
“The CEDB had decided to suspend the Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar Junior for three UEFA competition matches for which he would be otherwise eligible, for insulting match officials.”
The punishment means the Brazilian will miss the first three group matches of the 2019-20 Champions League.
Whether those are games he plays in as a PSG player is a debatable case, given the former Santos star has been linked with what would be a sensational return to Barcelona.
