4 matches banned to Neymar may have nothing to do with what happened on the turf of the Brazil-Colombia after the final whistle by Enrique Osses, referee of the match. It may be related to what happened on the tunnel to the locker room in the report of the match, according to the local media: "You only want to be famous because of me, son of a bitch" would Neymar have said to the referee, waiting for him before entering the locker room.

This information may be confirmed by the sanction jury of the Conmebol to the Brazilian media. Actually, some informations say that Conmebol may decided at first to ban him 5 matches. The Brazilian Football Confederation may have appealed to reduce the number of matches banned to Neymar. Anyway, from the Brazilian national team they don't have the same opinion as the Jury: "The punishment is too strict and it goes away from what FIFA or UEFA apply. There is no previous cases like this case in Conmebol. We insist that the referee unbalanced the player" commented to the jury services of CBF.

On the other hand, Alberto Lozada, member of the Comitee of Conmebol, said that "according to the report, Neymar's action was thought, waiting for the referee and insulting him. The ban may be even bigger, he was lucky."

Before Sunday, Conmebol have to decide if the accept the appeal of CBF and if the modify Neymar's ban. If the situation doesn't change, Barça's player may not return to this Copa America. Depending on his frustration he will stay in the meeting of the Canarinha or he would pack his luggage, Dunga said in the press room.
