But what does Neymar play? Officially, no one yet knows at PSG if the Brazilian star will be able to play next Tuesday in Dortmund. On the other hand, everyone now knows that she is capable of walking the podiums in Düsseldorf. Five days before the knockout round of the Champions League, the number 10 in Paris has already taken the direction of Germany on Thursday afternoon.
Not for football, but rather for a fashion show, organized by Peek & Cloppenburg, a chain of clothing stores based across the Rhine. Replay’s ambassador, “Ney” thus moved to launch its REPLAY4NJR capsule collection created in association with the Italian jeans brand. An event planned for many weeks that the Brazilian relayed on his networks. On his various accounts, we see him successively singing, a bottle of energy drink in his hand, signing a few autographs in the midst of hundreds of people camped behind security barriers or even posing on the “red carpet” of the event alongside of the Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio.
If his status as a football star and his position as a global muse obviously does not prevent him from meeting contractual obligations, the calendar of his people outings is nonetheless debated, as the moment seems once again unsuitable for this kind of event .
Announced uncertain for the meeting in Amiens on Saturday
Two weeks ago, the Brazilian had already celebrated his 28th birthday with great fanfare in a trendy club in the capital, in the company of around twenty of his teammates. A fiesta which, not content with being already scheduled at 48 hours from a championship match in Nantes, had also been followed by the package of the Brazilian due to a rib injury contracted the day before the evening during the match face Montpellier.
Fifteen days later, Neymar certainly resumed training normally with his partners. But after missing the trip, 10 days ago in Nantes, the shock against Lyon last Sunday, he again forfeited Wednesday evening for the quarterfinal of the Coupe de France in Dijon (1-6) and still has was announced more than uncertain for the meeting in Amiens on Saturday. “I can’t tell you 100% that he will play against Dortmund,” said his coach Thomas Tuchel, a bit mysterious, last night after the match. Was it related to the star’s persistent pains or related activities? The only certainty, after having already missed three of the last four 8th finals disputed by PSG since his arrival in the capital, Neymar does not prepare that of Tuesday evening in a very academic way.
