PSG winger Angel Di Maria could face a lengthy ban after fresh footage emerged of him spitting towards Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez. 

Gonzalez was at the heart of the mass brawl after which five players were sent off during PSG's defeat to Marseille at the Parc des Princes on Sunday. 

He was accused by Neymar of called him a 'monkey motherf*****' but Marseille boss Andre Villas-Boas defended his player, saying he is not a racist before going on to allege that Di Maria spat at the centre-back.

And now fresh footage has emerged supporting the Portuguese's sensational post-match accusation. 

In the clip shown by Téléfoot channel on Tuesday evening, slow motion footage displays Di Maria spitting in the direction of Gonzalez as he jogs away. 

Gonzalez looks furious and shouts after the Argentine in response. The video is paused and circled when Di Maria turns his head and spits. 

Pascal Garibian, technical director of refereeing, explained after the game that VAR had not found images to validate the accusations of spitting. 

He said: 'This was the subject of a search by video support at that minute and we couldn't find any images to support this fact. That doesn't mean it didn't happen, but there is no video image which in a convincing manner could support this precise point.'
