Paris Saint-Germain world-record summer recruit, Neymar is back in Brazil for personal reasons, according to a report from the media.
The attacking ace, Neymar Jr is as a result of his visit to his country out of the Ligue 1 heavyweights’ squad for the meantime.
PSG boss, Unai Emery himself had earlier informed reporters that Neymar will not be part of his team to clash with Strasbourg.
And that is for an encounter in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday because of an ‘important family issue’.
The Brazilian international returned to his native over the weekend after the Parc des Prince outfit gave him a break.
And that was particularly due to the fact that he missed the 3-1 Ligue 1 win against Lille through suspension.
And that is in the tough-looking Coupe de la Ligue showdown at the Stade de la Meinau yesterday night.
Despite that, Emery has failed to disclose the major reason behind the £198m world-record signing’s ongoing absence from the Parisians.
“He actually called me on Saturday morning to tell me that he had a very important thing in his family.
“And he asked me if the club and I agreed to let him go to Brazil,” the Spaniard informed reporters.
“It was important for him, the human element is important and sometimes, the work goes into the background,” Emery concluded.
