Emotional Neymar declares "new toe" would be perfect birthday present

The Paris Saint-Germain squad and coach Tuchel were present at the Brazilian's 27th "Nuit Rouge" (Red Night) birthday party in the French capital.


Sunday's PSG defeat away to Olympique Lyon was put to one side last night in the French capital as the Paris Saint Germain squad along with first team coach Thomas Tuchel joined the glamour from the French music and fashion scene to celebrate Neymar's 27th birthday.

During the evening, an emotional Neymar offered his thanks to all attendees and visibly emotional stated that his perfect birthday present would be a "new toe". The player is set to miss the next two months of action following a serious toe injury sustained in a recent cup game against Strasbourg at Parc des Princes.
