Neymar is likely to suffer a ban in the Champions League finals for change jerseys after semi-final victory of Paris Saint-Germain over RB Leipzig.
On Tuesday night the French club, with a convincing 3-0 victory over the Bundesliga team in Portugal, achieved their first-ever European Cup final.
The semi-final win for PSG was sealed by Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, and Juan Bernat and now they will face Bayern Munich or Lyon in the showpiece game on Sunday.
PSG will have to play without Neymar because of his actions moments after the final whistle when he exchanged shirts with a Leipzig player, according to The Sun.
The Brazil icon has been seen making an interchange with Marcel Halstenberg on the pitch, which is against the Uefa rules.
Uefa’s 31-page ‘Return to Play Protocol’ released earlier this month states: ‘Players are recommended to keep from changing their jerseys.’
This adds that failure to comply with obligations “can lead to disciplinary action in compliance with the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations.”
It was confirmed after the lockdown before the return of the Champions League that during the mini-tournament exchanging shirts would result in a 12-day period of self-isolation.
Uefa’s official protocol is not meant to say that isolation will have to take place, but there are now concerns about Neymar’s involvement.
Whether he is going to be suspended for Sunday’s game there has been no signs yet but fans and everyone else involved in the club could face an anxious couple of days to find out.
