Neymar jets out to Brazil for ‘personal reasons’

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has reportedly jetted out to Brazil due to ‘personal reasons’, said the company that manages the player’s affairs.

A source from NN Consultaria told French news publication Agence France-Presse that the 25-year-old forward is heading back to South America due to an undisclosed family problem.

It was not specified whether the footballer had arrived in Brazil already, and nothing was revealed about the exact reason for returning home.

However, Radio Monte Carlo report that the prolific forward is en route to his native country after getting ‘bad news about his family’.

Neymar was banned for last Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Lille, and it appears he could miss PSG’s next encounter in the Coupe de la Ligue against Strasbourg on Wednesday.
