Neymar ‘blocks out chants’

Neymar has said he never heard alleged racist chanting during Barcelona’s draw with Espanyol. ‘I block out the stands and focus on football.’

The game ended goalless at Cornella-El Prat but was marred by allegations of racist abuse directed at the Brazil forward from home fans.

“I didn’t hear the chants. I block out things off the field, and just focus on football,” AS quotes Neymar as replying when asked by a reporter.
