PSG new signing Neymar Jr. will miss his new club’s opening match of the season today as a result of incomplete paperwork by the club.
He will watch from the stands after his unveiling to the crowd before the kick-off, the AFP reported.
His hopes to play today were dashed when his international transfer certificate failed to be lodged with the French league by the midnight deadline on Friday.
Meanwhile PSG has already realised around a million euros on their world record investment, after selling a staggering 10,000 shirts bearing the Brazilian’s name in just one day. Each shirt was sold for 100 euro.
