- Neymar has stated that he never planned to organize a party that would break social distancing rules
- The Paris Saint-Germain star is currently recuperating from injury back in his country in Brazil
- The 28-year-old is expected to return back to action for his club at the end of February
Neymar has denied rumours that he would be hosting a 500-person party in his homeland as he showed off his low-key New Year's Eve dinner at home.
The 28-year-old is currently recovering from an ankle injury while on duty with Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports in Brazil claim the attacker will be hosting a party packed with models and influencers.
But the former Barcelona star has denied all the claims and insisted that the party had nothing to do with him.
And his lawyers told AFP as quoted by The Sun:
"It's a matter for the agency and it has nothing to do with Neymar. We have no information about such an event."
At the early hours of the New Year, Neymar posted what he was doing on his Instagram handle with the story of him and his son Davi Lucca getting tested for Covid-19.
He showed off his table with the seats given reasonable distance to adhere to coronavirus rules and posted:
"Marvellous decoration for this beautiful, low-key little dinner at home, with social distancing."
Neymar is expected to return to Paris later in January, where he will be greeted by a new manager Mauricio Pochettino, who is tipped to take over from sacked Thomas Tuchel.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Neymar suffered a terrible ankle injury during Paris Saint-Germain's loss to Lyon in a crunch Ligue 1 game at the weekend.
A late tackle Thiago Mendes on Neymar saw the Brazilian crashing to the floor in tears and was later stretchered off the pitch.
Mendes was given his marching orders but Lyon held on for the win as Tino Kadewere grabbed the only goal of the match in the first-half.
