How Neymar, Cavani, Verratti, and Other PSG Players Celebrated the New Year

Footballers are just like us when it comes to celebrating the new year. Well, maybe not exactly like us.

On Tuesday, Paris Saint-Germain players bid adieu to 2019 and welcomed 2020. In the case of Neymar Jr., he took the opportunity to post a photo on social media with a cryptic caption that read: “2019, the year of learning 🙏🏽🙌🏽 blessed.”

We don’t know what 2020 will be the year of but PSG supporters hope it is a healthy one that finally brings a UEFA Champions League title to the French capital.

Neymar, who is healthy for the first time in a long time, celebrated the new year in Barra Grande with several of his closest friends, including Jota Amancio who documented the trip with a photo of Neymar’s crew on a boat.

The night before, Neymar channeled his inner-Lavezzi and partied on the beach as shown in this video that lit up social media.

Other PSG players had a much more subdued new year than Neymar but it’s clear they all took advantage of the extended time off. Everyone returns to Paris on January 2 to resume training for a hellish January that could see PSG play eight matches.
