Neymar is one of three Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) players who have tested positive for coronavirus after taking a vacation in Ibiza, Spain, according to multiple reports online.
Neymar is in isolation for two weeks at his house in Bougival, just east of Paris, after receiving his test results earlier on Wednesday. He will miss PSG’s first Ligue 1 game of the season scheduled for 10th of September against Lens and the Classique against Marseille on September 13th.
PSG’s Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, who also vacationed on the Spanish island, have tested positive and are in self-isolation. The club confirmed the positive results but did not reveal the players’ names.
PSG’s first match against Metz was postponed because PSG played in the August 23 Champions League final, losing to Bayern Munich.
Under Ligue 1 protocols, a game must be postponed if a club has four positive cases.
