The Real Reason Why Neymar Will Miss Paris Saint-Germain's Next Match Revealed
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar was recently given permission to attend to "family matters" in Brazil, which could see him miss the French side's next game. It has been suggested there is another reason for his absence, though.
The Brazilian was recently allowed to fly home to see to "family matters" in Brazil, which is why he was not present at PSG's recent 3-1 win over Lille in Ligue 1 – a clash he was unavailable for due to suspension.
Neymar will now also miss Les Parisiens' Coupe de la Ligue match against Strasbourg on Wednesday night as he is not yet back from Brazil.
Other big names in the squad will be absent from the tie, which suggests they are being rested, but Brazilian publication Globo Esporte believes there is more to the former FC Barcelona star's visit home.
It has been claimed that the 25-year-old was not in Brazil to see to family issues, but rather to attend a friend's father's birthday party, as well as take a trip to a dentist.
Neymar has been given permission to miss a number of PSG's matches this season, which has led many to think he is not entirely happy in France.
The player and his teammates have rubbished these rumours, though, insisting he is delighted with life at the French giants.
