Neymar’s return to match action appears to be edging closer as he looked fit and healthy in a keepy-up challenge at home against his dad.
The £198million Paris Saint-Germain attacker returned to training in the French capital earlier this week as Thomas Tuchel looks to reintroduce his star man before the season concludes.
Tuchel will sense that return is not far away as Neymar laughed and joked inside his home as he got the better of his dad in the skills challenge, suggesting he has no issues now after picking up a serious foot injury in January.
Neymar went off against Strasbourg on January 28 and has missed a crucial part of the season through a metatarsal injury.
While PSG have no midweek action in the Champions League, that was the ball of choice for Neymar and his father as they had a light-hearted game at home.
Neymar Snr receives the ball from his son but gets his control all wrong and the ball bounces off his knee and hits the floor.
His protests are quickly quashed with the whole sequence recorded for the player’s Instagram story and his dad had to face up to the loser’s punishment: a flick on the ear.
