Neymar's Poker Passion Competes with PSG Celebrations3 months ago
Neymar, the renowned football star of Paris Saint-Germain, noticeably opted out of his team's celebratory events this weekend, instead choosing to indulge in a game of poker in Monte Carlo. This world-class forward has a well-known affinity for the game and decided to attend the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco while enjoying a few rounds of poker. However, Neymar was not discouraged by his previous loss of €1 million, which garnered attention when he streamed it on Twitch and even jokingly mocked himself with fake tears, showing little concern about the outcome.
The Grand Prix in Monte Carlo holds excellent prestige in sports, with the top drivers considered megastars on par with the best footballers. Neymar, however, undoubtedly became the center of attention at the Monte Carlo Casino, as F1 media personnel eagerly lined up to have the opportunity to play poker with the PSG star.
Neymar's decision to ignore his teammates during the celebration remains unclear. PSG manager Christophe Galtier refrained from criticizing the player for his absence and suggested there might be underlying mobility issues. Neymar was in the locker room for the final training session. Galtier cautioned against making hasty conclusions.
Despite Neymar's occasional absence, his transition to the French champions has not been as seamless as anticipated, fueling speculation that the club may be looking to offload the most expensive footballer in history.
Although Manchester United reportedly expressed interest, there has yet to be much progress in the transfer negotiations. Consequently, Neymar may have more leisure time to engage in poker as his football career encounters obstacles.
