Ah, to be a fly on the wall at the Yoyo nightclub at the Palais de Tokyo last Sunday.
On February 2, Neymar Jr. hosted a “private event” at the popular Parisian hotspot and was joined by family, friends, teammates, and even opponents as Olympique Lyonnais forward Memphis Depay was in attendance.
Not in attendance was manager, Thomas Tuchel, sporting director, Leonardo, and club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Tuchel was asked about the party at a press conference and even went as far as to call it a “distraction.” To be fair, the timing wasn’t ideal. The late-night party came a day after a match at the Parc des Princes and two days before a trip to FC Nantes.
There is one good thing that came out of the celebration. Neymar was quoted as saying “For the first time, I feel completely happy in Paris.” That’s definitely a good sign if you’re Leonardo and hoping Neymar signs a contract extension past 2022.
On Thursday, Neymar posted photos from his birthday on Instagram and at the time of publication, the post has 2.7 million “likes.” Not pictured is Kylian Mbappé, who was in attendance but arrived late after attending an event at Disneyland Paris. Check out all of the photos from Neymar below:
