Explained: Why Neymar's PSG Debut Was Delayed

By SL International - Aug 06, 2017 11:56 AM

Neymar watched on from the stands as Paris Saint-Germain began the season with a win over Amiens, but it has now been explained why he wasn't allowed to make his debut in the Ligue 1 opener.

The 25-year-old signed for Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday in a world-record deal worth €222 million, which was his buy-out clause.

Neymar featured in all of FC Barcelona's pre-season encounters and revealed at his unveiling that he was ready to play in the season opener.

However, according to Reuters, "PSG missed a midnight deadline for a transfer certificate to be submitted to France’s professional football league (LFP) from Spain’s football authorities."

Neymar is expected to make his first appearances for PSG away to Guingamp next weekend, while his first home will be the following weekend against Toulouse.

It didn't seem as if PSG were missing the Brazil international, as goals from Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore helped secure a 2-0 win on Saturday.
