Neymar’s decision to spend confinement in Brazil could become a handicap for PSG. French president Emmanuel Macron has announced measures to continue the coronavirus lockdown in France until May 11 and shut the borders to countries outside the EU. It’s hard for Neymar to return to Paris now.
The French league wants to return to competition on June 17 and unless granted exceptional clearance it’s doubtful Neymar will be able to train as much as his team-mates. Neymar isn’t the only player in this situation. Thiago Silva went to Brazil too, Cavani to Uruguay and Keylor Navas to Costa Rica. Marquinhos stayed in Paris.
