Santos president Modesto Roma has explained why their former star Neymar must receive a six-month suspension from football.
Reports recently surfaced claiming Santos had asked FIFA to ban Neymar for six months, and the club's president has now confirmed this.
Roma explained that Neymar and his representatives have been proven guilty by Spanish and Brazilian authorities of tax fraud around his 2013 transfer to Barcelona, and insisted that FIFA now needs to take serious action.
"I submitted the appeal in the month of May," he told radio station COPE Catalunya.
"Despite being an idol, we'll denounce Neymar because there are things we aren't happy with.
"During the transfer, things weren't done in an open and transparent manner.
"That's been proven by the Spanish law courts and the Spanish tax authorities, as it has been likewise by the Brazilian courts.
"We understand that the administrative debate must be undertaken by FIFA, but there are irregularities and therefore FIFA should take the matter to arbitration."
Neymar's move to Spain is said to be under investigation as there are claims his transfer fee was higher than what was publicly stated, which, in turn, harmed some investors.
On the football front, the Brazilian attacker has played eight games this season, and has found the back of the net four times.
