Neymar has taken to Twitter to share his disappointment over the injury-related absence of PSG’s Champions League clash with Barcelona.
Neymar was banned from PSG’s round of 16 against his old club after sustaining an injury in the French Cup 1-0 win over Caen.
Neymar used social media to explain that the game was among the top three games he wanted to play.

As a result, Neymar walked on his own in the 59th minute and was reportedly seen limping after the game.
