The 28-year-old Brazilian playmaker introduced himself as the face of the jeans brand Replay, with which he launched a capsule collection called NJR. He invited himself with several of his Brazilian friends, whom his followers on Instagram undoubtedly recognized. In addition, there were a lot of people at this celebrity event, including the Brazilian models Izabel Goulart and Alessandra Ambrosio, but also the American actor Adrien Brody and the Canadian F1 driver Lance Stroll.
This promotional operation comes in a delicate context for Neymar, injured in the ribs since the beginning of the month. This physical glitch, which occurred during the 5-0 victory against Montpellier, prevented him from taking part in the last three meetings of PSG. Above all, German coach Thomas Tuchel said Wednesday evening that he was not sure he could count on his technical leader for the trip to Dortmund. Within the Parisian club, optimism is nevertheless in order for a presence in the boiling stadium of the BVB.
