PSG and Brazil star Neymar Jr appears to lose €1million during online poker in marketing ploy
Neymar Jr is currently on the sidelines following ankle surgery in March, though the Brazil and PSG forward continues to make headlines away from the pitch.
The 31-year-old, who is known to have taken part in the European Poker Tour, has been ruled out for the remainder of this season as he recovers from surgery.
According to Brazilian news outlet Globo Esporte, this was nothing more than a marketing ploy by an online bookmaker. It's understood Neymar made 'no investment' in that particular game and, as a result, didn't lose any of his money.
The forward made 20 league outings this season and won't surpass that number due to his current injury.
